  • Weight Loss And The Theory Of Constraints  By : Jim Bolding -
    It's always been fascinating to me how business, finance and weight loss parallel one another.

    Four weeks ago I weighed 197 pounds (97.5 kilos) and my aim was to lose weight at the rate of one pound (450 grams) per week until I was down to 180 pounds; without giving up any food that I like.
