I can recommend a book with a lot of good advice on this issue.
It is written by Matt McDonald and is called RACING WEIGHT How to Get Lean for Peak Performance. It is the older book (not the newer condensed version).
A lot of the information is the same as you hear on Spark. But he does add some formulas and charts and reasoning behind his stats to come up with the correct amount of carbs, protein, and fat based on your training load, current weight, and gender.
He talks a lot about nutrient timing.... before, during, and shortly after runs (how much and what to eat).
For me, it is just motivational to "read" about getting fit that helps me to actually work at it.
