Safe, sane, long term low carb diet?

Practical, science-based, safe, sane "low carb" book that doesn't pull any punches? (If simply "Atkins," which one?) I'm looking for a book that is gung-ho, but still spells out what can go wrong and why: I'm three days in to a self-created low carb diet. All sorts of good stuff has happened, but all sorts of disconcerting stuff has happened, too.

I read Good Calories, Bad Calories and it was revelatory (but not practical). (Miscellaneous: I'd prefer to not lose any weight and go to maintenance--so I need lots of lifestyle information. Also, I have allergies to milk and eggs, if that makes a difference. I've been eating tons of meat, coconut oil, coconut "butter," olive oil, all sorts of nuts and seeds, veggies, and a small serving of fruit per day.)
