Some new diet books (True Food and The Digest Diet) hit the USA market, and diet books are in general higher up the charts even as summer ends. Eat to Live (vegan whole foods) and Wheat Belly (gluten-free) are still selling well.
In the UK, Hairy Dieters (lower fat and sugar) is still near the top of the overall book sales charts, although not many other diet books are selling well. (Cookbooks, yes. Diet books, not so popular). The Complete Dukan Cookbook, soon to be released, is already one of the top selling diet books, showing that the Dukan Diet is still extremely popular.
The positions in the bestselling charts are according to a snapshot of book sales from Amazon. The number in brackets next to the top titles is the ranking in all books – i.e. True Food (book) is the no. 1 top selling book in the USA on Amazon, and The Digest Diet is the no. 55 top selling Kindle book in the USA.
