Eat avocados daily for 6 months, get paid by a university

57474055 Get Paid To Eat Avocados Possibly Lose Weight

Loma Linda University is seeking candidates to participate in an avocado weight loss study.

"The study will examine whether eating one avocado per day reduces visceral adipose fat in the abdomen", Joan Sabaté, director of Loma Linda University's Center for Nutrition, Lifestyle and Disease Prevention, said in a statement.

It's a 6-month study and participants will get free avocados.

You have to be willing to eat one avocado a day for six months.

The big bonus: Everyone will get paid $300 each at the end. The test group will be given 16 avocados every two weeks and are required to eat one avocado per day throughout the six-month study.

"Since avocados contain the highest fat content of any fruit, it seems illogical to think they might actually help people lose their belly fat", Loma Linda University reported.

You also must be at least 25 years old and either 40 inches around the waist if you're a man or 35 inches around the waste if you are a woman.

The four school are recruiting 250 participants each, for a total of 1,000 participants in the study. Selected participants will then be randomly assigned to one of two groups and will receive a free MRI and health screening by a clinician from the university.

While the study is funded by the Haas Avocado Board, Sabaté says the study won't tip its results to favor the avocado promoters.

Researchers at Loma Linda University, Penn State, Tufts, UCLA and Wake Forest University are seeking about 250 interested participants each this fall to test out the commonly-believed hypothesis that nutrient-rich avocados are good for you - and, specifically, if consistent avocado consumption "impacts the amount and distribution of fat in the body", according to the application site. "We are rigorous in our selection of projects", he stated on LLU's website.
