Candace Cameron-Bure has come under scrutiny recently for her eating habits, but the former Full House star spoke out recently to defend her choices.

The 38-year old posted a photo recently on Instagram of a day at the beach, and she looked more fit and toned than ever. After years of struggling with her body image while going through adolescence on television, she says she knows what her body needs and took to Facebook to let her fans know that she was fine with her choice to do a protein shake cleanse.

"After going back to my normal eating habits as well as extended overindulgent summertime vacation eating and normal exercise routine, my body has endured some confusion causing some minor health issues. That is private, so I will not go into detail, but this cleanse is just a step to getting it back on track because I know that food is a key source to healthy living," she wrote.

Cameron-Bure spoke recently about body image issues, saying there is one problem in particular that lends itself to the issue.

"I can’t stress enough how much airbrushing and photoshop goes on with every picture. Even the non-professional pictures are manipulated. 99% are manipulated to look perfectly flawless. It becomes a mind trip to all of us. In reality, we are beautiful, but they are getting a little extra help," she said. "My advice to girls is to know that God wonderfully made you and you are unique and special no matter what your size is. God loves you and it’s not dependent on what you weight or how you look or where you’re at. God’s love is full no matter what, because it’s how He made you."

The former child star made headlines earlier this month after she "stole" John Stamos' phone while they were both attending co-star Dave Coulier's wedding and took a selfie with Andrea Barber, who played Kimmie on Full House.

“This is what you get when you accidentally leave your phone with Deej & Gibbler," Stamos wrote when she shared the photo.
