I tried it a couple of years ago and I lost 80lbs but it was too strict and I stopped. No salt forever is something that I couldn't live with. I did like the other aspects however. Six weeks ago I decided to get back on track, with a few changes here and there. I eat 5-6 small meals a day but I eat salt,just in small quantities. I also work out more than the 30 minutes. I work out 1 hr and 30 minutes 5 days a week. I leared a lot form MT 6 wk body makeover but the no salt was a deal breaker for me. I knew that I could not go the rest of my life with no salt.
