Candace Cameron Bure Talks About Struggles With Bulimia

She was everyone’s favorite big sister on the 90s sitcom “Full House,” but Candace Cameron Bure didn’t have such an easy time dealing with the pressures of young fame.

In a recent interview with “Omg! Insider,” the actress, now 37, spoke out about her battle with bulimia. She recently wrote a memoir called Balancing it All, which sheds more light on some of the struggles she shared in her first book, Reshaping it All.

‘A totally new life’

The actress said her issues with food were centered around the challenges she faced after her marriage to hocky pro Valeri Bure. After moving to Montreal to support her husband’s career, Bure said she had a emotional struggle dealing with a “totally new life” and trying to adjust to different surroundings.

“I turned to food for comfort and had to find a different source, because clearly it wasn’t a healthy way to deal with things,” she said.

Coping with her eating disorder required that Bure lean back on her religious foundation.

“That’s really when my faith was kicked up a notch and sought comfort in my relationship with God, and not with food.”

Finding support

While Bure said her eating disorder started during her run on “Full House,” the actress said she always felt supported by the cast and crew on the show.

“I think I was very protected by my parents and even the producers,” she noted. “They all had a sensitivity about it. The producers were parents themselves. I don’t think any of them wanted to see that happen to their child, so I was protected.”
