A minute with Candace Cameron Bure

Candace Cameron Bure is hoping that her story of triumphing over tough times serves to help others who are facing their own challenges.

The former Full House star talked in a recent interview about her battle with bulimia, a struggle that began shortly after she married husband Valeri Bure at the age of 20.

“That really was the time of identifying with being an actress and that being my whole life, and then now being someone’s wife and moving to a new city, a new country even.”

“I turned to food for comfort and had to find a different source, ’cause clearly it wasn’t a healthy way to deal with things. So that’s really when my faith was kicked up a notch and sought comfort in my relationship with God—and not with food.”

Bure acknowledged that it’s ironic that she escaped having body-image issues, a common enough problem among teenagers (let alone teenage actresses) during her time on Full House, only to develop them later in life.
