There's a Tufts study that will pay you to eat avocados

The study is to be called, "The Habitual Diet and Avocado Trial".

You have to be willing to eat one avocado a day for six months; however, you can not participate in the study if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or planning pregnancy. If you do get picked for the study, you may want to check out some creative ways to eat avocados.

Although avocados are rich in monounsaturated fats, which lower bad (LCL) cholesterol, they are not rich in protein and other vitamins, so dietitians recommend choosing a variety of produce and not just sticking to avocados.

The study will be conducted by researchers at Loma Linda University, Penn State University, Tufts University and the University of California, Los Angeles.

There are age and weight qualifications for those interested in signing up.

The participants will be paid $300 at the completion of the study. Each school will recruit 250 people who live in the city where the university is based.

If you are willing to eat one avocado every day for six months - or limit yourself to only two per month - you might be eligible for some free avocados and a $300 check.

You also have to measure at least 40 inches around the waist if you're a man or measure at least 35 inches around the waist if you're female.

The study was announced on Tuesday, August 28, and they have already received enough applications in the Loma Linda, Southern California, area.

Joan Sabaté, Loma Linda University's principal investigator, said the financial backers will not affect the study's findings. In addition, participants in this study must also undergo two abdominal MRI scans and "attend a monthly dietary meeting", according to CNN. "We are rigorous in our selection of projects", he said.

Here's a ripe offer: a new research study is enlisting 1,000 people to eat an avocado every day for six months, and get paid for it.
