she diet book part motivational speech I enjoyed the first few chapters well enjoy Reading about her childhood and how she into acting was interesting but not really engaging She discussed her troubles trying to maintain her weight and regularly advocated healthy ideas like not drinking your calories in the form of soda and sugar drinks and that dieting isn t about denying yourself but learning some self control She wrote reasonable advice about having a plan for your weight loss and sited scriptures to back this up She RECOMMENDS BREAKING UP WITH FOOD KNOWING breaking up with food nowing to not essentially eat one s feelings and only eating when you are hungry not merely when it is time to eatTHE BADSomewhere after the first few chapters it started being bad She began using her fan letters to address certain topics such as breastfeedingCandace tells the inuiring to watch her daily intake of cream because surely you can shed a few pounds However numerous studies have found how good cheese can be for you as well as cream especially for a breastfeeding mother Studies have shown how milk and milk based products are healthful especially for growing children pregnant and breastfeeding mothers THE DEAL BREAKERI was feeling unnerved about her breastfeeding advice I was devastated when I got to page 50 and read an example of what Candace eats everyday I cannot express how sad I was to learn that this woman who promotes health and NOT starving yourself who is seen on the back cover of the book eating a bowl of fruit loops is actually STARVING HERSELF Even though this book is definitely centered around weight loss and healthy eating it is so much than that Yes it is Christian based and her faith makes up the core of this book but I didn t feel that it was harassing me into believing God Rather using scripture Candace illuminated what God wants for all of us how he so desperately wants Disappointing disjointed and unorganized I m a Christian but found this novel disturbingly preachy and felt as though Candace is judging the reader I feel as though this bookis an attempt at converting the world to her extreme form of Christianity justifying the fact she married at a very young age convincing the world that she s indeed happy and normal though most North American women cannot afford to be stay at home mothers proving to people that she eats showing off how good she looks now Jesus solves eating disorders I believe prayer helps with all but there comes a time when God wants you to help your self which means getting professional helpI read Jodie Sweetin s book before this one it was honest raw and fascinating I thought this book would be similarly enjoyable but it wasn t I grew up watching Full House on television and wondered what had come of CandaceThis novel is very disappointing as I really wanted to like it and tried to enjoy it I did like the pictures of her growing up and her family in the middle of the book I would NOT recommend this At first I was a bit skeptical I ve read celebrity biographies and they aren t usually worth their salt especially as self help books I had heard about the book from following Cameron Bure on Twitter and I came across it when I was at a local Christian bookstore in the health section For a long time I have struggled with healthy eating and snacking and I have come to feel that it was connected to my spiritual life and the snacking I do with my relationship with God When I picked this book off the shelf and saw that that s exactly what it was about I decided to give it a try I m so glad I did Because there is a co writer the writing is actually good The analogies are also spiritually based and don t feel hokey There is a good use of scripture and encouragement to see overeatingundereating as sinning in not propery caring for your body I was inspired and also gained helpful tips and nuggets that I can post on my mirror on my fridge and anywhere else that I need a reminder about who I really amIf you are a Christian and you struggle with eating improperly I highly recommend this book This was an okay read but after the first couple of chapters some of the thoughts and ideas started to seem a bit repetitive I did enjoy the sneak peek reading about her growing up as an actress along with Candace Cameron Bure s life now however that didn t really seem like the intention of this book This book is of an aid for healthy living through diet and exercise with just a glimpse into the actress life not a memoir In all honesty I so picked this up hoping it was of a memoir If you are looking for a tool for healthy living I would say there are better books out there This book does not really give that much factual information into wellness and is towards the actress suggestions on what has worked well for he. Ite the toothpick thin expectations of HollywoodMore than a testimony here is a motivational tool that will put readers on the right track and eep them there In addition to practical advice Candace offers a biblical perspective on appetite and self control that provides encouragement to women guiding them toward freedomIncludes 16 page black and white photo inse.

Summary ¸ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Candace Cameron BureEs that obedience will turn in my favor Being putty in His hands resting in His plans and laying my burden at His feet means that I ll be a different wife mom daughter friend and actor than the world would expect It means that I ll be animated by the hand of my Lord ready to do His will when He speaks I can t be salt and light if I become like everyone else OH MY HECK I M GLAD THAT S OVER This book was not well done When it wasn t acting like a running advertisement for Bure s acting and money making ventures it referred incessantly to her stint on Full House her run on a show that I m guessing has since been cancelled since I ve never heard of it called Make It or Break It and speaking engagements and a line of t shirts that she sells via her website it s reading like weight loss as directed by someone with only the vaguest notion of how the body works Which brings me to my next point neither of the women who authored this book have any medical dietician or exercise science credentials whatsoever and yet they feel comfortable shelling out advice to women on how to eat how and when to exercise and how to control food addiction Not only is their pat advice patronizing it s unethical In one scenario Bure answers a fan who has written to her advice about weight loss while breastfeeding by telling her to CUT DOWN ON HER DAIRY INTAKE She makes no mention of the fact that limiting her caloric intake and ramping up her exercise regimen could cause this woman s milk supply to drop no mention of hormonal changes that might be causing this woman s body to halt weight loss as a way to support breastfeeding NO mention of even SEEING HER DOCTOR TO SEE IF SHE SHOULD BE TRYING TO DIET Nothing Nada This book is a definite case of a little information can be dangerous Bure takes the little that she nows from her own personal study her bibliography has I id you not FIVE sources listed one of which is Dr Phil s Ultimate Weight Loss Solution head desk and stretches it into NINETEEN CHAPTERS OF DRIVEL and outright DANGEROUS assertions like the idea that Jesus and lots of will power can cure an eating disorder dieting and breastfeeding go hand in hand and that living in Hollywood is like SUPER HARD you guys The recipes were ridiculous who needs recipes for things like fruit and yogurt parfaits and breakfast oatmeal and the guidance was slim Listen I m not saying that Bure hasn t had a rough time I m sure she has But to assert herself as an expert in curing food addiction and eating disorders as well as expecting me to listen to judgmental prattle about people who according to her message just need to try a little harder and they d be thin is offensive Her nasty little jab
At The Fatty Cooking Stylesthe fatty cooking styles abilities of women from churches in the South that s right she credited the WHOLE South were out of place and unkind especially when used in a story about how these women were feeding HER after inviting read paying her to speak at their church There was also a mean little tale about how a family friend who is absolutely terrified of flying would get on a plane for ME time and time again and once had a Fairly Severe Sounding Panic Attack Which Was severe sounding panic attack which was funny to Bure NiceAs a final comment the co author of this book has since it s release put on what looks to be about 50lbs which is totally fine Except that according to the tone of this book that just means that she s lazy and letting food rule her life I have no problem with weight gain in other people I actually read this because I thought it would inspire me in my own weight loss journey but if you re going to put your name on a book that is as judgmental and self righteous in tone as this one you d better be able to o your money where your mouth is Otherwise be a ghost writer I DO NOT recommend this book to anyone At all There are far better resources out there for pretty much everything that this book tries to address which won t make you feel like God hates you if you re not actively working at staying slim and trim as a way to maintain His temple I was really excited to read this book having grown up watching Full House I was anxious to read about Candace s faith and weight loss journey I was uickly disenchanted with the book Perhaps it s just not what I needed to read at this stage in my life but to me it came off with a bit of a holier than thou attitude I m not saying that was the intention because I highly doubt that s the case but there was just something about it that rubbed me the wrong way I think she does have some good practical advice but it was also advice I already now and share as things I ve learned in my own journey All in all I thought the book was a bit of a let down I came across this motivational book by Candace Cameron Bure yep the Candace Cameron from Full House There was some good in the first few As well as national talk shows including The View and NBC’s Today In Reshaping It All she continues the story inspiring women to embrace a healthier lifestyle by moving faith to the forefront making wise choices and finding their worth in the eyes of God Candace shares a candid account of her struggle with food and ultimately her healthy outlook on weight desp.
