Two I'd recommend are Why We Get Fat by Gary Taubes. It explains the science in a fairly easy to understand way. Also, Primal Body, Primal Mind by Nora T Gedgaudas. I'm in the midst of reading this book, but one of the early chapters about gluten is something everyone should read.
Also, don't worry so much. Stress is bad, remember? Eat some fat, you'll feel better soon.
I'm editing to add that both books discuss insulin, blood sugar and diabetes in easy to understand ways as well as many other topics of interest to anyone wanting to improve their health and well being.
