As far as I know, this cannot be done using NonlinearModelFit. NonlinearModelFit seems to be designed to do non-linear regression with the usual assumptions. This is an unconstrained optimization problem. Once you impose a constraint on any parameter, the problem becomes a constrained optimization problem. See: tutorial/UnconstrainedOptimizationOverview tutorial/ConstrainedOptimizationOverview =46indFit or NMimimize can be used to find the best fit parameters with constraints. Look at the second entry in the online documentation for FindFit for syntax details.
