In the USA, 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse (raw green leafy vegetables in smoothies, high liquid cleanse) has had a boost in popularity and risen back to the top of the charts. Gluten-free Grain Brain, Wheat Belly, and Against All Grain remain popular along with paleo recipe books.
In the UK, The Fast Diet (intermittent fasting) remains a bestseller. The Hairy Dieters books (low fat and low sugar) and I Quit Sugar (no sugar) are a way behind. Juice cleansing, following The Juice Masters’ books, is also popular.
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. 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse is the no. 2 top selling book and the no. 69 top selling Kindle in the USA on Amazon at the time of writing.
