I personally have never had a problem with salt when dieting, and alot of the fat-free stuff that I eat is pretty high in content. As has been said, salt will make you retian water, but not severly if you're drinking enough. Most "normal" people wouldn't even notice a difference in the mirror, it'll show up on the scale, and be a problem if you are competing where vascularity is an issue.
If you're trying to reach a weight goal Steve, cut salt a week or two prior to weigh in, if fat loss is your only concern, then don't worry too much about it other than super high amounts is bad for the heart.
