Competing on "Dancing with the Stars" has helped many celebrities lose weight.
However, for Candace Cameron-Bure, that's not necessarily a good thing.
"I didn't have weight to lose to start," said the former child star, who has already lost five pounds on the show. "I'm working so much harder [now] that it's important to make sure that I have proper nutrition and to keep my muscles. If I'm dancing, the cardio can decrease my muscle if I'm not lifting weights and the last couple weeks I wasn't able to."
To make sure her meals are balanced, the mother of three, 38, subscribes to the "Dancing with the Stars"-provided meal service, Freshology. For Cameron-Bure, who said she's always tried to eat "clean and healthy meals," it takes the guesswork out of things, especially after hours-long dance practices. However, don't get confused: she doesn't want her time on the ABC series to end.
"I cried yesterday thinking about it, because I know how much fun I'm having and I don't want it to end," she said. "You realize you're making friendships with so many people which I'm sure will last, but I'm surprised by how attached I am feeling about this whole show and the people I met on it!"
"I don't even like thinking about it because it makes me sad," she continued. "I'm all in. I want to savor every day with Mark and the other dancers and the show in general!"
