What blood sugar spikes might mean for your weight

Health
Knowing how your blood sugar responds to certain foods could be a key to weight loss, according to the researchers behind a new diet book. Drs. Eran Segal and Eran Elinav of Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science tested blood sugar levels in 1,000 people after every meal for one week. They found that foods that created a healthy response in some participants produced an unhealthy blood sugar spike in other participants.

Shutterstock photoADP has recently acquired Global Cash Card , the company offering pay cards and other electronic payment accounts, thereby allowing employers the option to pay their employees with cards instead of paper paychecks or electronic deposits. The pay cards are currently the most rapidly growing form of payment and a significant driver to this growth is the rise of the gig economy (more short-term positions and independent contractors). Pay card transactions allow independent freelancers to consolidate all their income and expenses in a single account. Not only does it help the employees, but also from an employer's standpoint, digital payments are cost effective, more secure, and immediate.Scope Of Growth For Pay CardsThe value of Form 1099 transactions is expected to be some...

Health
Thinking about eliminating milk, cheese, butter, and other dairy products from your diet? You're not alone. Whether or not to give up dairy—and how to do it—is "one of the top questions I'm asked these days," says Cynthia Sass, MPH, RD, Health's contributing nutrition editor.One possible reason why so many people are ditching dairy? It's gotten the A-list stamp of approval: Jessica Biel has said she "just feels better" when she doesn't eat dairy, gluten, or wheat; Australian actress Margot Robbie told ELLE UK she avoids it when filming a movie because she thinks it causes breakouts. And earlier this year, Khloe Kardashian told Health she dropped 11 pounds after just two weeks sans dairy. "If I want to lose weight quickly, dairy-free is the way to go," she said.But can a
