That is a LOT! Wouldn't you think that someone---anyone---should have hit on an answer by now?
I feel sure that if someone wanted to whittle that down by throwing out duplicates, similar books, or books with the same target (wheat allergy, weight reduction, or whatever), they maybe could get the total down to a hundred thousand or so.
Some of them really do sound scientific. A favorite is "Eat Right for Your Blood Type" or something like that. My personal favorite of long ago is "The Grapefruit Diet" That last is the one that teaches that the more grapefruit you consume, the more weight you lose and the healthier you get.
Reams felt they could all be lumped together under the title of "FADS." He taught that if anyone read enough health books they would probably come to the conclusion that there is nothing left to eat.
A common problem all those titles have is that they focus on either what you should consume or what you should not consume. None of them seem particularly interested in what YOUR body does with whatever any particular author is preaching.
RBTI truly is different. It measures what your body does with what you consume. Follow a fad diet if you wish. RBTI will soon enough help you figure if you helped or instead harmed yourself.
That grapefruit diet was a doozy. Thousands and thousands of people swore it helped them lose weight---the more they ate, they more they lost. Of course, their health steadily declined because they were eating sour, piss-poor quality grapefruit filled with acids, mal-formed proteins, potentially harmful aminos, and who knows what toxins. Their body was forced to expend huge amounts of precious energy disposing of bad stuff.
So the grapefruit diet died out pretty quickly. The author no doubt took the money and ran away to formulate yet another scam on the public. Neither he nor his sucker base ever learned that if you eat sweet, high Brix grapefruit as taught by Dr. Reams, in proper quantities, they would find weight stability. And this as their RBTI-measured health profile and energy would dramatically climb.
