In the USA, 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse (raw green leafy vegetables in smoothies, high liquid cleanse) is continuing to be the best-selling diet; after being the no.2 book of Amazon for several weeks straight it’s dropped down a little, perhaps as people are focusing less on diets (and perhaps buying more reading books) as summer moves on. Super-Shred (negative energy balance, calorie disruption, nutrient-dense) has surged in popularity again.
In the UK, The Fast Diet (intermittent fasting) is still the best-selling diet book, although it’s dropped in chart number as summer has rolled in. remains a bestseller. I Quit Sugar (no sugar) and the Hairy Dieters books (low fat and low sugar), and also The Juice Master’s books (juicing) continue in popularity.
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. 8 top selling book in the USA on Amazon at the time of writing.
