Hollywood star Candace Cameron-Bure had her career beginnings in the 1980s. She debuted on the medical drama series St. Elsewhere. She later achieved her breakthrough after landing the role of D.J. Tanner on the sitcom Full House, which she starred in from 1987 to 1995. Her regular stint on the show earned her mainstream recognition. Simultaneously, she starred in the films Some Kind of Wonderful, Punchline, and Monster Mash. She also starred in several TV films during this period such as in I Saw What You Did and Camp Cucamonga.
She starred in many more TV movies after Full House ended in 1995. In the 2000s, she had roles in the movies The Krew and The Wager. She also starred as Summer Van Horne on the comedy-drama series Make It or Break It. In 2014, she competed on Dancing with the Stars’ Season 18 where she finished third place. Following this, she appeared on the show The View as a co-host. She later reprised her role as DJ Tanner-Fuller on the Full House sequel Fuller House, which she started playing in 2016. Her latest film role was in 2015’s Faith of Our Fathers.
The 42-year-old actress stays in shape by sticking to a clean and well-rounded diet as part of her daily lifestyle. “The majority of what I eat is plant-based and whole grains. If I do eat a meat protein, it’s from fish. I’m not vegan because I do eat quite a bit of seafood, but I don’t eat much dairy or red meats anymore,” she said. Of course, she also has cravings and she allows herself to have them. Her indulgences include lots of ice cream. She said: “Ice cream—just gallons and gallons of ice cream—that’s what I love the most. I also really like french fries, too, if we’re going to go salty and sweet.”
