I have done quite a bit of reading on this topic and the most authoritative book I have read is called "Natural Hormonal Enhancement". Unfortunately you won't find it in a book store but you can find it online easily.
The premise of this eating plan is to mimic our hunter/gatherer ancestry. Essentially, after the initial "carb cleanse" you follow a program of high protein/low carb with the exception of every 3rd and 7th day when you can eat as much carbs as you like for the last meal of the day. This mimics the days when we hunted for our food and ate greens/nuts and berries when there was no game.
I also highly recommend "Wheat Belly". I have several celiacs in my family and I initially wanted to read it to understand that disease better. However, after cutting bread and past out of my diet for the most part since Christmas I feel fantastic. I sleep better, have more energy and feel less bloated. Although I have been training for a spring marathon, I have dropped over 20 lbs since Jan and I attribute it to a restriction on wheat and exercise.
