BRAINBUSTER: according to a new survey, the more colorful these are, the better the economy. Colorful what?
 
ANSWER: underwear
 
According to a recent survey, colorful underwear signals a better economy.
 
Dudes tend to buy for practicality, not fashion, when times are tough, according to fashion blog The Underwear Expert. That means your classic Hanes boxers are the go-to, not bright boxers or the sexy briefs your girlfriend loves. But the reverse happens when the economy starts picking up—colors become more popular. So welcome back, economy!

MONDAY FEBRUARY 4th, 2013
BRAINBUSTER: According to a new study out last week, the earlier in your workday you do this, the more weight you’ll lose if you're dieting.
 
ANSWER: Eat your lunch.
 
Researchers don't know why weight loss was greater in the early eaters, but one hypothesis is that glucose (sugar) is processed differently depending on the time of day. Another theory is that the timing of meals can impact the circadian system (the body's clock) which may disrupt the proper function of the liver and fat cells.
