Kindle diet books are higher selling than usual in the USA – perhaps as people are heading out on vacation. The Skinny Rules by Bob Harper of The Biggest Loser (whole foods, portion control) and Wheat Belly (gluten-free) are at the top of the chart, with whole food vegan diets like Eat to Live and Forks over Knives close behind. In the UK, the Dukan Diet (multi-stage) is still the top seller, with Six Weeks to OMG (high protein, moderate carbs) becoming more popular.
The positions in the bestselling charts are according to a snapshot of book sales from Amazon on July 2, 2012. The number in brackets next to the top titles is the ranking in all books – i.e. Eat to Live is the no. 14 top selling book in the USA on Amazon. None of the Kindle diet book titles are in the Kindle top 100.
