The Skinny Rules by Bob Harper of The Biggest Loser tops the USA diet charts as summer approaches – it focuses of reducing processed and junk food and portion control. Wheat Belly, advising a gluten-free diet, has headed back up the charts, and there are a number of vegan books high on the list. Diet books are surprisingly low on the charts in the UK, with the Dukan Diet remaining the most popular.
The positions in the bestselling charts are according to a snapshot from Amazon on May 31, 2012. The number in brackets next to the top titles is the ranking in all books – i.e. The Skinny Rules is the no. 23 top selling book in the USA on Amazon.
