I'm reading "Good Calories, Bad Calories" and it is AWESOME. HIGHLY recommended.

I am also a fan of Dr. Andrew Weil; "8 weeks to optimum health" for example.

I enjoyed Food & Mood by Elizabeth Somer.

It has chapters on how nutrition affects and is affected by sleep, stress, compulsive overeating, cravings, SAD and PMS, and a whole bunch of other related topics.

It's an older book now, almost 20 years, and the information might not reflect the latest research on nutrition.

Edit: Somer has M.A. and R.D. after her name. I assumed she was a registered dietitian, though on her website she calls herself a "nutritionist". Not sure what that even is...

I have just read "Snack Girl to the Rescue," by Lisa Cain, who has a Ph.D. In biology. Her advice is scientific but also funny and realistic. She lays out a very doable way to eat healthy, satisfying food and lose weight. I highly recommend it.

For a general nutrition book for the consumer, I suggest:

This is not a diet book, cookbook, etc. This book covers many topics of general food and nutrition in consumer language.
