When Gold, a Los Angeles physician, and his wife, Rose-Gold, a biochemist, read in the New England Journal of Medicine that a substance known as Omega-3, a ""good fat'' found primarily in fish, is apparently responsible for surprisingly low levels of cholesterol in the bloodstreams of Eskimos, and low rates of coronary disease among them, they converted to a fish-centered diet. Their 14-day rapid weight-loss plan (dieters can lose up to 10 pounds in that period, the authors claim), presented here, is designed to deplete the fat in the bloodstream as well as that stored in the body's fat cells. Many of the recipes feature salmon, which appears to have the highest Omega-3 content. Much of the book is devoted to convincing the skeptic that fish tastes good; fish 'n' potato hash is basically a sop to help change the meat lover's mind-set. But Cajun-style salmon is delicious, as are the inventive variations of familiar fish dishes. Included are clear directions for selecting, freezing, cleaning, skinning, boning and spicing fish.
