Candace Cameron Bure Weight Loss Secrets
The 5 feet 2 inches tall actress Candace Cameron Bure revealed how she got back to shape. She talked about a series of exercises and dietary choices that made her transformation possible.
Candace Bure’ Workout Regimen
The actress works out under the guidance of her friend/fitness coach, Kira Stokes. Bure usually exercises for an hour at least five days a week. But, when she works out with Kira, the sessions can prolong upto two hours or more.
Candace has a five days workout regimen with two days rest per week. Her regimen starts with a cardio session on the first day. For her second, she usually has resistance training to build her overall strength. On the third day, she trains HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) that burns more calories than any other form of exercise.
Day four sees the return of resistance training while the week concludes with a combination of HIIT and resistance training. The 5th and 7th days of the week are termed as rest days. Here’s her workout regimen.
|Day 2||Resistance Training|
|Day 4||Resistance Training|

Fuller House Star’s Lost Weight After Following These Lifestyle Tips
Diet and Exercise were not enough for the Fuller House star. Hence, she took it a step further and followed a daily set of rules, eight rules, to be exact. Well, here are the eight lifestyle tips that helped Candace Cameron lose weight.
Avoid Dairy Products, Sugar, and White Flour
Dairy Products is a no-no for Candace. She says it irritates her stomach. Avoiding dairy has been a great choice for her as her stomach inflammation, congestion, and puffiness in her face and body have also declined.
Bure also stays away from white flour and sugar. Why? Because they only have high-calorie count and low nutritional value.
Eat more plant-based foods, says Candace. She indulges in veggies, fruits, and whole grains, but occasionally, she also eats eggs and on a very rare occasion, fish.
Boring Meal Plan
Eating the same meal day in day out might get boring to you, but Candace is accustomed to it. She believes it’s necessary to have the same meal options to keep your digestive system and metabolism rate on track.
According to the actress, she used to get bored with eating the same foods but now, she knows what she wants and just stay within the healthy recipes.
Carbs and Protein Shakes
According to her diet plan, DJ Tanner Fuller consumes good carbs before any workout and afterward, drinks protein shakes or consumes any protein-rich snacks.
It’s a known fact that a smaller plate makes you eat less and satisfied at the same time. Hence, the Christmas Town star serves food on smaller plates to keep her food portion in check.
One should only consume how much their body can tolerate and that’s about it. Valerie Bure‘s wife says overeating is the major reason for weight gain, so it’s not good to eat till you’re fully satisfied.
If you listen to your stomach and just eat until you’re satisfied, not full, you can always take the rest of your food to go.
The 80/20 Rule
Let It Snow alum also follows the 80/20 rule in her diet. She says 80% of the time, she consumes everything healthy but in the remaining 20%, she treats herself to her favorite snacks.
A Partner in Crime
Similar to Shannon Beador‘s weight loss journey where she had a partner to work out with, Candace also had a partner she could depend upon. She believes having a partner will keep your motivation level at check and on track during the weight loss journey.
Reply to a Body-Shaming
The 43 years old actress Candace Cameron Bure silenced a body shamer in 2018. Yes, she was once body-shamed by one of her fans.
On a photo posted on her Instagram on April 14, 2018, where she is standing with her then 18-year-old son, Lev Valerievich Bure, a fan by the IG handle, grettavontrappandspanky posted a rude comment that slammed her weight loss journey.
The comment read, “All that excersizing, and you still look like you weigh more than your husband, did you change your diet?” Clearly, the commenter mistook her son for her husband.
In reply to the body shamer, Candace replied, “If a 25 inch waist looks big to you… then you’re looking through an altered lens. Be well.”
Well, Bure sure seems to know how to add sarcasm to her answers.
What does Candace Cameron Bure Has to Say About Weight Loss?
Nothing could be more positive than this! Candace Cameron Bure’s weight loss journey is what many yearn to go through but cannot. For her weight loss, she feels that she is more fit at this age than she ever was in her life.
Weight loss is an emotional achievement for Bure and not just physical as she had problems related to Bulimia (an eating disorder) for some years.
As she married her husband and shifted to Montreal, she had no friends and family, and her partner also traveled often during the hockey game season. So, she was all alone, and this lonesome feeling made her munch more and binge-eat. But, credits to her as she gained control of her eating habits, and here she is as fit as a fiddle.
Candace told People Magazine, she doesn’t struggle with fitness anymore and that she loves to eat what makes her body feel lighter rather than the food that makes her stomach bloat. She also revealed that she wants to keep her body top notch for many years to come.
You kind of take your body for granted when you’re younger, so the older I get, the prouder I am of the things I’m able to do with it.
Cheers to Candace Bure for her weight loss journey and the fantastic lifestyle she has chosen for a healthy life!
