In the USA, The Zero Belly Diet (whole foods, free-from) has surged to the top of the charts, overtaking The 20/20 Diet by Dr. Phil, which was the bestselling book at the beginning of the month before the book was actually released. The Food Babe Way (detox) hasn’t yet been released but it’s selling well in advance. Vegan, gluten-free, and cleanse diets are all selling well.
In the UK, diet books take over the whole country in January! Deliciously Ella (vegan, free-from) and Davina’s 5 Weeks to Sugar-Free (sugar-free, unprocessed) are at the top of the charts. The Fast Diet (intermittent fasting), very popular in 2014, has risen to become a bestseller again, and The Hairy Dieters books (low calorie, low fat) are also popular again.
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. The Zero Belly Diet is the no. 2 top selling book and the no. 22 Kindle book in the USA on Amazon at the time of writing.
