More dieting for the Hairy Bikers


Weidenfeld & Nicolson is to publish a second diet book from Si King and Davd Myers, the TV cookery duo known as the Hairy Bikers.

The Hairy Dieters: Eat for Life will be out in trade paperback in August (£14.99), with W&N non-fiction publishing director Amanda Harris buying world rights from Rowan Lawton at Furniss Lawton.

Harris said: "This second diet book will sate the nation's rapacious appetite for the boys' fantastic recipes and dieting advice. It will also be a candid account of what's worked for them to keep the weight off."

The Hairy Dieters: How to Love Food and Lose Weight has sold 1.2m copies in the UK via the publisher's figures, with 692,000 recorded by Nielsen BookScan.

W&N also published The Hairy Bikers' Great Curries in February, with Nielsen BookScan sales thus far of 59,000.
