This works for a variety of tasks, but less so for software development. See paulgraham.com/head.html and paulgraham.com/makersschedule.html

Can you elaborate on the carbohydrate-heavy diet?

comment How do I clear my mind before going to sleep?
Agree with Gary - melatonin's effect can be easily powered through if you don't go to sleep without 1-2 hours after you take it. As for dependency, I haven't developed any, and the thing is available OTC - highly safe.

comment Resetting ones' whole biological clock?
This experiment was apparently never replicated so the method probably doesn't work.

The all-nighter doesn't work for me. If I go to sleep THAT early (7pm??), then I wake up at 2am and can't fall asleep again. Melatonin in doses up to 0.5mg works better.

Reading boring materials works well too. I bet there's something of that nature that you need to learn for school.

Thinking you'll be late might stress you out so you wake up prematurely - be careful with that.

This food-clock trick has worked for me to reset my sleep cycle when traveling from the US to Europe or Australia. But on the other hand, I had other motivations in the morning as well ;)
