I don't subscribe to any of the online journals as I prefer to do things the old fashioned way with books. If I need to I can usually google the full text of almost every study I'm interested in and on the rare occasions when I can't the abstract will usually tell me everything I need so I don't see much point in paying for anything.

Instead of recommending any journals then I'm going to suggest that you get hold of a copy of Exercise Physiology: Energy, Nutrition, and Human Performance by McArdle, Katch and Katch as it covers pretty much everything you need to know plus a ton of stuff you've probably haven't even thought of yet. There's a new 7th edition out now but any good library should have a copy of one of the earlier editions so I'd go that route before buying a copy.

I forgot to add that you can find a lot of incredibly useful material at www.nap.edu with Dietary Reference Intakes for Energy, Carbohydrate, Fiber, Fat, Fatty Acids, Cholesterol, Protein, and Amino Acids (Macronutrients) (http://books.nap.edu/catalog.php?record_id=10490) (aka The Macronutrient Report) being an invaluable reference for anyone with a serious interest in nutrition. The Linus Pauling Institute's Micronutrient Information Center (link (http://lpi.oregonstate.edu/infocenter/)) is another useful resource.
