Candace Cameron Bure is admitting to her own personal battle with bulimia after the hit family show Full House ended.
“It’s a very dangerous cycle that can just start to consume your life and really take over,” the former child star tells People Magazine.
Cameron Bure, 34, chronicles her eating disorder for the first time in her new book, Reshaping It All, in which she writes that she started binging and purging after Full House concluded in 1995. At the time, she was also adjusting to married life in Canada with her new husband, hockey player Valeri Bure, then a right winger for the Montreal Canadians.
“It wasn’t about me trying to lose weight. It was all about emotions,” Cameron says. Cameron Bure says she’s now at a healthy weight, attained through family exercise with the retired Bure, 36, and their kids, Natasha, 12, Lev, 10, and Maks, 8, and a diet plan that stipulates eating everything in moderation.
Reshaping It All hits stores next month.
