Actress and ‘Full House' star in Oklahoma City to promote new book on fitness and health
Candace Cameron Bure is back on TV in ABC Family's “Make It or Break It,” but millions of viewers first watched her when she played D.J. Tanner on “Full House” years ago.
A Christian speaker and author, the years of transition from childhood star to mom is part of the focus of her new book, “Reshaping It All,” which details her own unhealthy relationship with food. She hopes to motivate others to get physically and spiritually fit. Darlene Schacht is co-author.
Bure, 34, will be in Oklahoma City today to sign and promote the book. She said in an interview this week that she wrote it after years of being bombarded with questions during public speaking engagements about fitness and weight.
The book offers a biblical perspective on appetite and self-control, although people of any faith can enjoy the book.
“God gave me this body, and really, it's an envelope for my soul,” she said. “It doesn't matter what size I am — God's not going to love me any more or less depending on the number on the scale — but yet I need to take care of my body because He gave it to me. I can't utilize the body he gave me unless I'm healthy and fit.”
The book offers a mix of practical advice, personal stories, recipes from her kitchen and details of her own struggle with food addiction and the effect it had on her childhood acting career and her life as a wife and mother.
