In the USA, diet book sales are quiet at the end of summer. The Whole30 (paleo-influenced elimination-reintroduction diet) is the bestselling diet book, and some soon-to-be released Trim Healthy Mama books are currently popular.
In the UK, diet book sales are also quiet. Jaime Oliver has released a new cookbook/diet book that focuses on calorie restriction, Everyday Super Food. The usual “free-from” suspects that have sold well all year long are hanging on.
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 Whole30 is the no. 38 selling book on Amazon USA at the time of writing.
