Candace Cameron Bure, whose career started during her teenage years, has spoken openly of her eating habits and disorders, as well as how her relationship with food has affected her life.
Most recently, she shared with her fans that she hasn’t eaten fast food in the last 20 years, apart from In-N-Out. The Instagram story she shared read: “I haven’t eaten fast food except for In-N-Out in 20 years. Some days I wonder what a burger and fries is like from McDonald’s or Burger King or Wendy’s or any of those other places I’ve never eaten at. Today is that day. Am I going to find out? No.
“And no, I’ve never had Taco Bell or anything similar,” the actress added. “I don’t regret it. You can’t convince me otherwise.”
Following the post, fans were quick to ‘do their homework’ and check if the actress was telling the truth, and based on an old photo of her, she wasn’t. Namely, they unearthed a photo of Bure showing her holding a Chick-Fil-A cup with one of her sons. The photo, which was taken back in 2012 was captioned: “We love chikin!”
This made Bure take a stand and confront those who attacked her, and she did that through her spokesperson. “Candace told me that she drove her son to get food at Chick-fil-A and she only ordered an iced tea for herself,” the spokesperson said, adding that the accusations of Bure lying about not having eaten fast food in the last two decades were ‘ridiculous.’ “Candace is only holding a cup,” her spokesperson further added.
In her book Reshaping It All, from 2010, Bure opened up about her eating disorder. In a 2016 interview, Bure shared with ET: “I knew I had a problem but again, it’s like being on a runaway train and you wanna get off but you don’t know how to get off.” Further, the Full House star noted, “I kind of lost my identity in a sense and what happened was I turned to food for comfort when my husband was traveling and when I was alone. I had a very unhealthy relationship with food that turned into bulimia. I dealt with it for several years but it wasn’t about body image and trying to feel good — It was about trying to find comfort or fill voids within myself.”
Bure, who is a mother of three, wants her children to be aware of the importance of healthy eating and fitness.
What do you think of Bure’s statement that she hasn’t had any fast food in that many years?
