(Relaxnews) – If you’d like a little diet and fitness advice for your poolside reading, here are a few recent bestselling books to thumb through.

“Drop Two Sizes” – Co-owner of Results Fitness in Southern California and last year’s IDEA Personal Trainer of the Year, Rachel Cosgrove shares a 12-week diet and exercise plan to get you lean and mean. All you need is a set of dumbbells.

“The Fast Diet” – Journalists Dr. Michael Mosley and Mimi Spencer created the famed British 5:2 diet, which involves intermittent fasting to shed stubborn bulge. You fast for two days of the week, but not completely — you eat one-fourth of your typical daily calories, roughly 500 calories for women, 600 calories for men — and eat what you desire the remaining five days.

“The Parisian Diet” – Dr. Jean-Michel Cohen, one of France’s top nutritionists, offers English speakers a taste of how the French stay slim. The book features 325 recipes, including plenty of carbs such as pasta and bread, with the focus on portion control and calories.

“Fit 2 Fat 2 Fit” – American personal trainer Drew Manning decided to stop exercising for six months while eating “a typical American diet,” gaining more than 75 pounds/34 kilos. Then he put his own fitness and diet advice into action to shed the weight and penned a book on the experience.
