I once was put on an 800 calorie a day, no salt diet die to high blood.pressure, all under Doctor's orders and supervision, this was succesful and I did go back to eating normally. It took some doing to find things without salt and some of the non salt foods are nasty but I learned what I could and would eat and years later I no longer follow a no salt diet but I do not add salt to food. If you come to my house to eat I will put a salt shaker on the table if you want it but I do not put salt in anything I prepare, soups, vegetables, etc. After awhile food with salt will taste very salty and you will be drinking a lot of water.
PS if your Doctor recommends the DASH diet I would take his advice.
