Candace Cameron Bure Draws Criticism for Attempting Cleanse

Thu, 17 Jul 2014 11:27:16 +0000

ABC/Lou Rocco(LOS ANGELES) -- Candace Cameron Bure took some heat from her fans this past Monday after announcing on Facebook that she was kicking off a five-day cleanse.

The recent Dancing with the Stars contestant posted a status that read, "After a very indulgent week in Napa, I'm excited to kick off my 5 day cleanse…Shakes for breakfast & lunch, sensible snacks & a light veggie dinner!"

The post got a mixed reaction from fans, some of whom warned Bure of possible health risks associated with the cleansing fad.

The former Full House actress responded a little later with a follow-up post clarifying her earlier one.

“After reading your comments," Bure wrote, "let me expand! I'm excited to start my 5 day cleanse not to lose weight but to get my body back on track, ridding all the toxins and unhealthy stuff I've put in it the last few months.”

Bure, 38, went on to explain, "Since being off Dancing With The Stars, my body has struggled to find its balance after having danced up to 8 hours a day and eating so clean." She added that, "After going back to my normal eating habits as well as extended over indulgent summertime vacation eating and normal exercise routine, my body has endured some confusion causing some minor health issues."

Candace insists the Paleta cleanse, which she's following, includes "real food," and she included a link to the company's website.

Bure ends the post by declaring, "If you still comment about how unhealthy I am for doing a cleanse or that I don't need to lose weight, I'll know that you never read any of this and I won't bother answering any comments below of that nature."

The second post received a much better response, earning twice as many "likes" from fans.
