Candace Cameron was the girl next door who became America’s sweetheart. She acted in her role as a child star in the highly-rated situational comedy Full House. She was the lovable, huggable girl whom everyone who saw the show admired for her classy acting chops. But But something that remained hidden from public view was the personal demons that Candace Cameron faced in her private life.
After the days of the show had ended on television, Candace found herself married and she shifted to Montreal. There she lived with her husband, Valeri Bure, who was a hockey pro. It was the lonely times spent at home that forced her into a problematic relationship with food. She became a bulimic.
Bulimia is an eating disorder where people binge and purge. It is a very unhealthy way of losing weight. After consuming huge amounts of eatables the bulimic vomits it all in order to avoid obesity. The damage this behavior could inflict on the body of the bulimic is so great that it hardly needs going into. The stomach acid in the regurgitated food can cause a lot of harm to the throat and teeth.
So Candace found a solution in the form of spirituality. Once she shifted her attention to God, the obsession with food just disappeared. Candace Cameron has mentioned her fight against bulimia in her new book titled ‘Balancing It All”. She is a source of inspiration to many bulimics who can now follow her example and end their misery.
