    Honestly I would consider an Atkins book. I know those are probably unpopular around here, due to the "you don't have to exercise" message of most Atkins plans, but the fact is most Atkins books are written by medical researchers and Doctors, and do a great job of conveying the message that HFCS is poison, simple carbs are evil, and carbs in general are typically over-utilized. Bodybuilders and fitness professionals have been using low carb diets for cutting since who knows when, and Atkins is just a "we have proof that this works" message in support of those activities.

    some get pretty scientific with lots of references, and are free of the bro-science that you will find in many diet books written by fitness professionals. You said you are looking for science behind what you read, I'm fairly certain there is more science behind low-carb than any other diet. oh ya, and it really works too, especially coupled with a weight training / cardio routine
