In the USA, The 100 (counting sugar calories) by Jorge Cruise has risen back to near the top of the charts, as the author does the rounds of the talk shows. Grain Brain (gluten-free, no processed carbs) has been a top seller for nearly a month.
In the UK, sales of diet and healthy eating books are generally low as the weather cools down. The Fast Diet (intermittent fasting) is the top-selling diet book at the moment, with The Hairy Dieters Eat for Life (calorie control including low-fat) coming close behind.
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 100 is the no. 8 top selling book in the USA on Amazon. No Kindle top 100 bestsellers in either country for this snapshot.
