Candace Cameron Bure Diet: 'Dancing With The Stars' Season 18 Cast Candace Cameron Bure Reveals Struggle With Weight Loss

Candace Cameron Bure's diet and daily workouts helped her achieve the slim figure she has today.

However, most people aren't aware that it wasn't just Candace Cameron Bure's diet and exercising that brought her to this stage - it had been a long, hard battle between her and her inner demons.

In 2010, Candace Cameron Bure's diet and regular exercise helped her lose 22 pounds and slim down to a measly 110 pounds. She didn't just simply revert back to her old lifestyle after that however, as Bure continued to maintain her weight by eating well and exercising with her three children.

While the actress is currently healthy and in the best shape of her life, it wasn't always so. Candace Cameron Bure's dieting had become more of an obsession for her, rapidly escalating to an eating disorder called bulimia. According to Bure, she started experimenting with diet pills during this time just to maintain her weight.

Bure spilled all the detals of her struggle with an eating disorder in a 2011 memoir titled "Reshaping It All."

"When I was 16, I filmed an episode of 'Full House' where my family goes to Disney World. I remember putting on baggy overalls just to hide my stomach. When I watched it, I was pretty disappointed and bummed out looking at myself. I didn't feel good about my own body," Bure said in her book.

Even at her heaviest, Bure only weighed 132 pounds which was not a heavy by any means, however she continued wanting to shed off more pounds.

According to Candace Cameron Bure, she found the transition from TV personality to housewife a daunting prospect, especially after her sitcom "Full House" wrapped up in 1995 and she moved to Canada with husband Valeri Bure, a Russian-born NHL player.

"When I first met Val, I would eat as much food as him - but then he would play hockey for three hours!" she says. "[Bulimia] wasn't about me trying to lose weight. It was all about emotions," Bure said.

Even with Candace Cameron Bure's diet and struggle with bulimia, fans still love her no matter what shape she's in.
