SIMON Cowell has ditched his strict vegetarian diet for white meat while recovering from a broken back.
The 60-year-old music mogul previously dropped four stone thanks to the lifestyle overhaul.
Simon has since switched back to meat and chocolate following his electric bike crash.
In fact, the dad-of-one is even being treated to his favourite turkey cottage pie by his girlfriend Lauren Silverman.
A source told The Mirror: “Lauren has been to the hospital to drop a few things off once each day. She has been making his favourite Italian bean soup and also Cottage Pie with turkey, which he loves.
“His diet is incredibly healthy but there’s nothing better than traditional English comfort foods and treats when you’re on the mend.
“Cowell is in hospital after falling off his new electric bike at his Malibu home last week. He narrowly avoided being paralysed as the impact was ‘a centimetre’ from his spinal cord.”
Simon is believed to be discharged this week, having already returned to work from his hospital bed.
The source continued: “Simon has been up walking and moving around again faster than doctor’s had predicted, although his friends are reminding him it’s important to heal before rushing back to work.”
The X Factor judge previously ditched meat and dairy, as well as swapping low calorie beer for his normal tipple.
He decided to overhaul his lifestyle after collapsing in October 2017.
Doctors warned against him living “like a vampire” by staying awake each day until 8am — saying it had to stop.
He admitted: “I went to see this doctor in London. We did some tests. And then a month later he said, ‘You have the worst diet I’ve ever met from any patient’.
“So I went, ‘Okay, out of the smoking, the drinking, and diet, what do I have to drop?’ And he said, ‘The diet’. So I said, ‘I’m in’.”
Simon is recovering in LA after a six-hour op to repair his spine, which he injured when falling off his bike in Malibu.
He broke three vertebrae, missing his spinal cord by a centimetre, in the horrendous fall.
