Full House‘s Candace Cameron Admits to Battling Bulimia in Younger Years

And pardon me if it’s insensitive, but it’s almost kind of like a ‘no duh’ moment, am I right?  Anyone growing up in the eighties and nineties watching the myriad of corny shows like Full House, Charles in Charge, or Growing Pains knew that there was something off with Candace’s weight, much like there was with Tracey Gold on Growing Pains. She fluctuated almost every episode from full-faced, chubby-armed child, to lean and tall middle schooler, to heavy high schooler and then back to skinny-bodied lollipop-headed college student. And this was just during the filming of the show. If that’s not a big, flashing indicator of an eating disorder, apparently nothing is.

Candace, in light of her previous struggles, has penned a memoir, Reshaping It All, which documents her battle against bulimia and chronicles her life through (and after) the Full House period.

I always thought Candace C was the height of cute in the eighties, even if she did dress like a phosphorescent Day-Glo factory on fire. At the very least, she was better than Jodie Sweetin, and we all know how that crazy bitch turned out. Cameron’s new book is due out on Friday and I’m actually interested in reading it. Once it hits the library, anyway. I’m a big library fan.

  • Actually, the article states that she suffered from an eating disorder once she was married to Val Bure and living in Canada, not when she was on Full House….

    • yeah but if you look at other articles and interviews that shes done, she only claims that it got worse after full house ended because she had nothing to fill the hole with except for food.

  • That’s sad to hear. She looks healthy now. She’s a Jesus freak and I’m not into that, but whatever gets you through, right.
