Candace Cameron Bure is having to defend herself after making a Facebook post about starting a new protein shake cleanse from Paleta Provisions. On Wednesday, ABC News quoted that the "Full House" star said “after a very indulgent week in Napa, I’m excited to kick off my 5 day cleanse with @eatpaleta today!! Shakes for breakfast & lunch, sensible snacks & a light veggie dinner.” What seemed to her to be a very innocent post on her Facebook page caused some of her followers to question her decision. Many did not have kind words toward Bure.

She definitely was not expecting the post to have so much backlash. After seeing that the post was getting negative attention, Bure went back to her Facebook page to speak out. She explained her current issues and reasoning for using the cleanse method.

It seems that Bure has taken a slight vacation from her “Dancing With The Stars” strict diet and exercise routine and she wanted to just start feeling better. She expressed that she was not doing the cleanse routine to lose weight, but to simply get back on track. She wants to rid her body of all the toxins. She feels that eating healthy and having a regular exercise routine is very important to having energy and feeling great.

She has been having some minor health issues since leaving the tough regimen that she kept on ‘Dancing With The Stars”. She did not wish to elaborate on the details of her health. On the show, she was practicing for 8 hours a day and eating clean. She looked amazing on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ and proudly accepted third place in the reality show competition.

Followers of her Facebook page were criticizing the actress for not eating “real food”. Bure wrote a Facebook post that made sure and noted that “Paleta cleanse includes "real food," as well as shakes.”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.” Many followers posted that they support Bure for what she is doing and she looks beautiful just the way she is.
