Reshaping it All: Motivation for Physical and Spiritual Fitness by Candace Cameron Bure Candace, who most of us remember as the oldest daughter DJ on the hit TV series “Full House” is now grown up with 3 kids of her own! In this book, she talks about her faith and how it has helped her to overcome a lot of hurdles in her life, including a struggle with food addiction that started as a teenager working in Hollywood.
Candace recalls the struggles of growing up in front of the public eye, and the criticism she received once she started to put on weight. Now 25 pounds lighter than she was on Full House, she talks about how she lost the weight with a lifestyle change, not a diet. Her change included portion control, exercise, prayer, and learning self-control.
At the end of each chapter are lighthearted subtitles such as “The Main Ingredient”, “A Slice of Advice”, “A Pinch of Practicality”, “Food for Thought”, “Candy Dish”, and “From My Stove to Yours”. Each of these includes scripture, stories, advice, healthy recipes, and a lot of laughs!
If you are struggling with food addiction or losing weight, or even are just looking for an easy read that is positive and uplifting, I would recommend this book. Continue to read this week as we share more recommendations with you! :)
