The former child star who captured the hearts of fans as D.J. Tanner on Full House, Candace Cameron Bure was not exempt from the pressures of growing up in the public eye. In her new book, Reshaping It All, Cameron Bure reveals that she suffered from bulimia and discusses her path to recovery.
The actress appears on the cover of next week’s edition of PEOPLE magazine. “It’s a very dangerous cycle that can just start to consume your life and really take over,” she told the magazine. “It wasn’t about me trying to lose weight,” said Cameron Bure. “It was all about emotions.” Her eating disorder peaked after Full House ended its run.
Today, Cameron Bure is married to NHL player Valeri Bure and is the mother of three children, Natasha, Lev and Maks. She says her children and husband help her stay healthy and active, along with a diet that doesn’t prohibit anything as long as it’s in moderation.
