Bestselling diet books February 2013 – USA: Low calorie, portion control; UK – intermittent fasting

From Mama’s Table to Mine, by Bobby Deen, is near the top of the USA chart, featuring low-calorie, low-fat comfort foods. In general, low-calorie and low-fat diets have been on a downward trend so it’s fairly surprising to see it here.  Other top-selling diets don’t show any strong patterns.

In the UK, intermittent fasting is still wildly popular, with The 5:2 Diet Book and The Fast Diet recommending 5 days of feasting and 2 days of fasting / severely reduced calories. The Two Day Diet, which follows the same principle, will be released soon and may be a top-seller as well. Hairy Dieters is still near the top of the charts.

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. The Fast Diet is the no. 1 top selling book and the no. 15 bestselling paid Kindle in the UK on Amazon.
