In the USA, the not-yet-released Effortless Healing and the resurging 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse have been among the most popular books for some weeks; The Food Babe Way (detox) and The Zero Belly Diet (whole foods, free-from) have also been selling well but their popularity is starting to dip. Cookbooks related to dieting/healthy eating are selling well – vegan, low calorie real foods, and vegetable.
In the UK, Deliciously Ella (vegan, free-from) and Davina’s 5 Weeks to Sugar-Free (sugar-free, unprocessed) have stayed at the top of the charts since the beginning of the year. The Hairy Dieters books (low calorie, low fat) remain 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. Effortless Healing is the no. 17 top selling book and Good Calories, Bad Calories (on a fire sale) is and the no. 32 Kindle book in the USA on Amazon at the time of writing.
