Week 3, Day 6

Is Fat Chance! suitable for Diabetics?

Broadly speaking, yes, Fat Chance! is suitable for diabetics. However, you may have to make some adjustments to suit your personal situation. We recommend you discuss the program with your doctor first.

Should I buy the Workbook or the Online Program?

This is personal preference. The content of the two is essentially the same although the online program includes a daily email of encouragement and free extra links. People who like books and writing with a pen will prefer the workbook whereas people who enjoy interactive technology will prefer the online program. It may be a generational choice. Some basic familiarity with interactive technology is required to make best use of the online program.



Fat Chance! may also be available from your Health Care Professional, Dietitian or Gym.

Practitioners and specialists are asked to contact us for further information on running Fat Chance! programs, trade prices and marketing support. See the bottom of this page for contact details. Further information is available here.

The total price you pay is determined by your delivery address because delivery is included in the price and will vary from country to country.

Delivery in New Zealand is FREE for retail customers. The total price in New Zealand is $44.99 NZD 

Total prices including delivery outside New Zealand are as follows:

Total price including delivery to Australia $54.99 NZD

You will pay in NZD. However, if you (the customer) live in Australia, USA, UK or Europe, these prices will be shown in your local currency (AUD, USD, Pounds, Euros) on the Buy Now page, to help you see how much you will be paying.

For example:

If you live in NZ you will see NZD
If you live in Australia you will see AUD
If you live in USA you will see USD
If you live in the UK you will see Pounds
If you live in Europe you will see Euros
Anywhere else in the world, you will see NZD

Please note: The price shown in your local currency is indicative and may vary slightly. You will pay in NZD.

Confused? Here is an example:

Suppose you live in Australia but order the book to be delivered to your sister in the USA. You will pay the price for delivery to the USA, shown in Australian dollars.

That way, it is easier for you to see exactly how much you are paying.

Any credit card fees and any currency conversion fees (if applicable) are additional and are not determined by Fat Chance Publications but may be added by your credit card company or bank.
