I am a junk food eating endurance athlete looking for books and other resources to inspire me change my diet and eating habits.

I am not interested in stories of folks that went from sedentary to athletic. Nor am I interested in the super elite athlete that went from eating a basically healthy diet (by my standards :-) to eating super cleanly or some other extreme regimen. I am your typical age-group adult endurance athlete that eats non-nutritious foods and I want to be inspired to change my ways by reading about others similar to me and my situation. I want to hear from other athletes that changed their really bad nutrition habits (fried foods, pizza, very few fruits & veggies, etc) to eating healthily, why they did it, and how it impacted their athletic performance. I have come across scientific or biology focussed resources, but I am more interested in more of the laymans reasoning and cause and effect personal account type stories to inspire me to change.
