Candace Cameron BureCANDACE Cameron Bure has opened up about her battle with bulimia.

The Full House star, 34, details her struggles in her new book Reshaping It All. She says she began binging and purging after Full House ended its run in 1995 and she was adjusting to life in Canada with her new husband, Russian-born NHL player Valeri Bure.

“It’s a very dangerous cycle that can just start to consume your life and really take over,” she said.

“It wasn’t about me trying to lose weight. It was all about emotions.”

Candace says she stays in shape thanks to plenty of family exercise time with Bure, 36, and kids Natasha, 12, Lev, 10, and Maks, 8, and a diet philosophy that allows everything — including her self-professed “weakness,” dessert! — in moderation.

    well who cares what she say. wow you were famous for 2 minutes and now years later you need more fame. YAWN

    • Denise


      It has nothing to do with fame shes just trying to inform people that she was bulemic and the dangers of it an that you can die from it. I know all this i was bulemic as a kid. You sound jeolous.

        Sam- Get a life. Sounds to me like you want to be famous with your nastiness. Grow up. If you dont like the article, dont read it and certainly dont comment if you have nothing nice to say. We dont care for you and your remarks.

  • Nobody

    @Sam, YAWN yourself. All your comment really shows is the sad life of someone who has never been famous and never will but can’t accept that reality.

  • Afton

    I agree with Afton. Every so many months this woman appears in the news with more junk no one cares about (homeschooling mom, her faith, now her bullemia years). No one cares, Candace! Also, your kids will not thank you for their ridiculous names

    • Denise

      Afton, well i care what she has to say and i’m sure other people will too. An what makes YOUR name so much better than theres!

    • Shannon

      @ Afton- the kids’ dad is RUSSIAN- that is where they got their names- and who is calling names ridiculous, AFTON? A**

  • Jamie

    Sam- get over yourself.
    Candace- it takes a lot of courage to be open about something like that, and a lot of people don’t understand it. Such a beautiful young woman who faces serious circumstances in life. Good for you for getting a handle on it and getting help! Here’s to a very happy 2011 to you and your family and continued encouragement!

      Both Sam and Afton need to get over their-selves. She has been famouss for a long time since full house with the different movies she makes. Not everyone has the ability to be open about some of the struggles they faced. And those are normal names. DID YOU NOT READ, the live in CANADA, those are normal names. I mean afterall, some people here name their kids after cars or soda. Just because you live in a sheltered world where everybody has “normal” names and does not have any struggles to deal with, does not mean that everyone else does.

  • Scott Sams

    Candace is a wonderful person and I am glad she is using her battle with this disorder to help others who are struggling.

  • Lynn

    Sam really you need to find something to do in your life rather than sitting at home on your computer as an insecure person poking at other people and their lives in a negative manner. I never comment on stories but it amazes me that when I look t those who do it is always negative and childish.

    Afton have you said your name allowed to yourself ever in your life? I dont think you are one to judge on “ridiculous” names.

    Though this is all media based and celebrities do not read the comments I still would like to say I am glad to know Candace is someone who appears to live descent life and is not the typical celebrity has some other issues as in drug or alcohol addictions.

    • Sarah Parker

      You’re a SCHMUCK and an asshole to boot! Get a life MORON!

  • Kelly Caresalot

    I would say she has had more than 15 minutes of fame and could probably buy ol Sammy. Good for her for coming out in the open and revealing a dangerous issue many woman face. I am an old Full House fan and my kids now have grown up on it. I say Go Candice!

  • grace

    Her kids’ names are traditional Russian names. Her husband is Russian. Open your mind, white bread.

  • dani

    i’ve always loved her. i’m glad she’s better! <3

    Candace is a true inspiration, a beautiful lady in all respects.
