The new study that will pay you to eat avocados

Four universities are partnering to determine whether or not avocados help with abdominal fat loss- and will pay you to participate

They'll be granted a fresh batch of avocados every other week, plus get exclusive tips on how to prepare simple recipes and stop the fruits from going bad.

Loma Linda University is looking for people to eat avocados - in large quantities and small quantities - as part of a study, and they're paying participants. It's very important that participants follow the rules of the study, eating avocados every day or twice a month depending on their group. Females, on the other hand, must measure at least 35 inches around the waist.

When the study is over, successful participants from both groups will receive $300 each.

Those being studied will receive a free health screening from LLU clinicians and US$300 in compensation.

Researchers at Loma Linda University, Penn State, Tufts University, and the University of California, Los Angeles want to study the effects of avocados during six months.

The study will be funded by the Hass Avocado Board, but Joan Sabate has vowed that the sponsorship will not have an affect on the findings.

The hypothesis being tested is that avocados might actually help people lose belly fat and promote weight loss. Whereas, the control group will not be allowed to eat more than two avocados per month during the timeframe.

Avocados are known to be rich in fats that are good for the heart.

And the biggest catch for avocado addicts: You can't already be eating more than two avocados a month.

One medium-sized avocado contains about 322 calories, 29 grams of fat, and 13 grams of fiber.

Once all the data has been collected, it'll be sent to Wake Forest University for final analysis.

They said millennials couldn't afford houses because they're too busy throwing their money away on avocados.
