Vegan / plant-based diet books have pushed themselves back to the top of the list in the USA, with Eat to Live the top-selling diet book, and other books like Forks over Knives Cookbook, Super Immunity and The End of Diabetes (by Joel Furhman) doing well lower in the charts. The gluten-free Wheat Belly is still doing well. Paleo diet books are doing well a little lower down the charts.
In the UK, Hairy Dieters has dropped a little in popularity but is still the top diet book. Vegetarian recommendations are generally selling well.
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. Eat to Live is the no. 16 top selling book and the no. 50 bestselling Kindle in the USA on Amazon.
