``This book is the result of one woman's lifelong battle with her hips.'' Brown's ``five to six meals a day'' as food editor of USA Today eventually caused her to fight back--she became ``a walking calorie calculator'' and furious foe of salt who was nevertheless hard put to content her ``rather jaded palate'' with dull and dispiriting ``health'' chow. So, in 1987, she founded the Gourmet Gazelle, a carry-out food shop on Manhattan's Upper East Side, to wage war on a larger scale. Her low-calorie, -fat, -cholesterol, -sodium dishes, though not presented with a dieting readers in mind, will aid and abet them, while her grandmotherly kitchen hints and international range (Caribbean grouper, Asian chicken salad) should please most tastes.
