Your Whole Life: The 3D Plan for Eating Right, Living Well, and Loving God is a 12-week journey to wholeness. In this book, Carol tells her own story and gives the spiritual foundation of the 3D plan, with new understanding for today. With honesty, realism, and encouragement, Your Whole Life provides weekly nutritional goals, a do-able exercise plan, tips for living well, daily spiritual readings, and more.
Nutritionist Maggie Davis gives you the knowledge and the tools to eat right for your whole life, incorporating a method of self-assessment and gradual behavior change that she has used in her practice with individuals and groups for nearly 35 years. She explores the "why's" of eating, the four types of hunger (stomach, eye, heart, or mind), how to determine daily caloric needs and portions, and ways to deal with obstacles and challenges.
Special features include:
• Tips for good lunch habits
• Tips for men
• New ways to express love with food
• 10 strategies to help you eat right for your whole life
Praise for Your Whole Life
"This book combines sound nutrition information with effective models of behavior change, using an approach for helping individuals make life long changes and providing the information to do so."

"As a woman of a certain age (and a changing metabolism!), I appreciate Showalter's and Davis' honesty about nutrition and exercise for bodies of all ages, and their slow and steady approach. . . . This book helps you realize that you are not alone!"
-Rev. Dr. Deborah L. Patterson, Executive Director, Deaconess Parish Nurse Ministries
In the 1970s, Showalter founded the 3D movement, one of the first major Christian diet programs in the nation, to help people focus on diet, discipline and discipleship. Here she teams up with nutritionist Davis to offer readers a religious foundation for the 3D program. What's refreshing is that Showalter doesn't just give lip service to Christian faith or slap a few Bible verses on an otherwise secular health book. She is serious about the "discipleship" part of the 3D program and provides meaty daily devotions to that end. The book presents a comprehensive 12-week plan that encourages healthy eating and exercise as well as deep attention to God and spiritual development. Showalter and Davis sound out a sensible middle ground in a weight-obsessed culture, emphasizing that healthy habits are important, but that God loves us no matter what the scale might say. An early chapter on the history of the 3D program might have been better suited to an appendix, but the book is otherwise marvelously organized and surprisingly substantive. In the devotions, Showalter tackles difficult topics like obedience, will, emotions, truth and discipleship. Dieters who tire of empty promises of quick fixes should check out this spiritual guide to health and the whole person.
