Books on Nutrition?

With summer coming up I’ll be having more free time and would like to be more knowledgeable about the scientific side of nutrition and supplements.

Anyone recommend good books on the matter?

Lean Gain Principles.
A Simple Guide To Very Low Carb Diets.
Tips And Tricks For Dieting Success.
These books can be bought for around $15 each.
