Mme's Links | Actor Anthony Anderson Loses 40lbs, Talks Diabetes, Taco Bell Dieter Runs Marathon + 6K Salad Bars in Public Schools

1. Comedian and former Law & Order actor, Anthony Anderson has been making media rounds to spread awareness of National Diabetes Month. With recent stops on Tom Joyner and Yolanda Adams' radio shows, he spoke on diabetes prevention and management, along with his F.A.C.E. partnership - on the effort. Diagnosed with the Type 2 form of the disease, himself, eight years ago - it wasn't until last year that he began to make changes for his life's sake. In the process of incorporating a healthier diet and exercising - he has improved his diabetic status and dropped 40 pounds. | "Anthony Anderson Takes on Diabetes" (Access Hollywood)

2. Like Subway's Jared Fogle, Christine Doughtery, the spokesperson and alleged success story of the Taco Bell Diet, also competed in last month's ING NYC marathon. She strongly attributed her dramatic weight loss of over 50lbs, to her 4 hour and 30 minute race day chip time. In addition to running 4-5 times a week, cycling and weight training. However, Doughtery intelligently made no clear reference of her preparation diet or 'Fresco' menu endorsement. As I can assure you, if she claimed to have utilized anything from Taco Bell to fuel for that 26.2 mile trek ... the lie detector test would've "determined that, that was a lie." | "Taco Bell Dieter: I ran the NYC Marathon!"

3. A major 'move' for First Lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" healthily lifestyles campaign was announced this week. Nearly 6,000 salad bars are set be introduced to public school lunch rooms, nationwide. Details concerning contents, upkeep and of course, costs - are in development. | "White House to put 6,000 salad bars in schools" (Grist)
