New diet books continue to be published as spring arrives. Intermittent fasting has been popular for several months in the UK and has now arrived in the USA – for the first time in nearly 2 years the top-selling diet book in the USA and the UK are the same: The Fast Diet. In the USA, Salt Sugar Fat, a rally against processed foods, is newly popular, and Shred continues to be near the top of the charts.
In the UK, intermittent fasting continues to top the charts (The Fast Diet, 5:2 Diet, 2-Day Diet), with new recipe books being released to meet the demand. 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. 2 top selling book in the USA and the no. 1 top selling book and the no. 36 bestselling paid Kindle in the UK on Amazon.
