Cameron Bure Sounds Off On Fast Food
“I haven’t eaten fast food except for In-N-Out in 20 years,” Cameron Bure, 47, wrote on her Instagram Story, according to Daily Mail. “Some days I wonder what a burger and fries is like from McDonalds or Burger King or Wendy’s or any of those other places I’ve never eaten at.”
“And no, I’ve never had Taco Bell or anything similar,” she added. “I don’t regret it. You can’t convince me otherwise.”
While Cameron Bure may not support those fast food restaurants, fans have since found a 2012 photo that shows her and her son enjoying a meal from Chick-fil-A, which is known for promoting strong Christian values. Chick-fil-A even closes on Sundays in honor of the Lord’s Day.

Cameron Bure Is ‘A Devoted Christian’
It makes sense that Cameron Bure would eat at Chick-fil-A, given the fact that she is one of the only openly Christian conservative actresses in Hollywood.
“I am a devoted Christian,” she said last year, according to Christian Broadcasting Network. “Which means that I believe that every human being bears the image of God. Because of that, I am called to love all people, and I do. If you know me, you know that I am a person who loves fiercely and indiscriminately.”
“My heart yearns to build bridges and bring people one step closer to God, to love others well, and to simply be a reflection of God’s huge love for all of us,” she continued.

Cameron Bure’s Past Eating Disorder
Cameron Bure has also been open about struggling with an eating disorder in the past.
“I knew I had a problem but again, it’s like being on a runaway train and you wanna get off but you don’t know how to get off,” Cameron Bure told Entertainment Tonight in 2016. “I kind of lost my identity in a sense and what happened was I turned to food for comfort when my husband was traveling and when I was alone.”
“I had a very unhealthy relationship with food that turned into bulimia. I dealt with it for several years but it wasn’t about body image and trying to feel good — It was about trying to find comfort or fill voids within myself,” she continued, adding that “the most important thing for me to teach my children is about health and fitness.”
Cameron Bure shares three children with her former professional hockey player husband Valeri Bure, who she’s been married to since 1996: Natasha, 24, Lev, 23, and Maksim, 21.
“It’s about taking care of your body and eating foods that are good for you and getting the right exercise that you need,” she concluded. “… It’s just about living a healthy life for longevity and a healthy heart.”
The most important thing we can do is not only admit it to ourselves but then to reach out for that help…exposing that secret and that struggle… before you can find freedom.
