But what you may not realize is that the talented McGorry was a professional bodybuilder before snagging those roles. McGorry tells Yahoo Health that his diet and fitness regimen aren’t exactly the same now as they were during his bodybuilding days, but we love the levelheaded mindset he has toward healthy living: He’s a fan of intermittent fasting, but he’s not maniacal about it.

Jared Fogle had something for minors, but it wasn’t money: Turns out his foundation to help battle childhood obesity did little but raise the Subway pitchman’s profile, USA Today reports. According to tax records, the Jared Fogle Healthy Lifestyle Nationwide School Grant Program spent an average of just $73,000 annually between 2009 and 2013 and never issued a grant.

Fetal tissue donation has been making headlines after an anti-abortion group began releasing undercover videos targeting Planned Parenthood — the third of which was released yesterday. The videos have ignited fierce debate on a practice unknown to most as little as a month ago: the fact that many women receiving abortions are given the choice to donate their fetal tissue to medical research — research that has been conducted over decades and has given us many lifesaving vaccines and disease treatments. We’ve heard from many experts on both sides of this debate, but we’ve yet to hear from women who have actually made this decision for themselves. Yahoo Health spoke with three women who shared their very personal decisions to donate their fetal tissue to research. For additional candid responses about why some chose to donate, or not donate, fetal tissue after having their abortions, we teamed up with Whisper, the free app that allows users to share their secrets anonymously.
