February 2012 Bestselling diet books, healthy eating books, special diet books, and nutrition books

Diet books sales drop after the New Year rush as people realize it’ll be several months before warm weather kicks in. In the USA, vegan diets continue to be top sellers, generally for health rather than purely weight loss diets, and Wheat Belly, advising a gluten-free diet, has risen back up. In the UK, The Dukan Diet stays on top but the Clean & Lean Diet has charged up the charts – this diet advises avoiding caffeine, refined sugar, alcohol and processed foods.

The positions in the bestselling charts are according to a snapshot from Amazon on February 13, 2012. The number in brackets next to the top titles is the ranking in all books – i.e. Forks Over Knives is the no. 35 top selling book in the USA on Amazon.
