In the USA, Gwyneth Paltrow’s recipe book following Dr. Alejandro Junger’s “Clean” detox/elimination principles continues to be a bestseller. Junger’s books are selling more again with the release of Clean Gut. Vegan and semi-vegan diets are surging again.
In the UK, intermittent fasting is still top – The Fast Diet, The 2-Day Diet, and The 5:2 Diet, along with their recipe / book books. Hairy Dieters (low fat and low sugar) is still going strong.
