In the USA, Grain Brain (gluten-free, no processed carbs) has risen to the top of the diet charts, and Wheat Belly (with similar eating guidelines) continues to be a bestseller. The Eat to Live Cookbook (vegan/near-vegan) was recently released, and has been selling well.
In the UK, the bestselling diets have remained steady for some time. The Fast Diet (intermittent fasting) is the top-selling diet book at the moment, with The Hairy Dieters Eat for Life (calorie control including low-fat) coming close behind.
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 – e.g. Grain Brain is the no. 16 top selling book in the USA on Amazon. No Kindle top 100 bestsellers in either country for this snapshot.
