(CNN) – If you're the kind of person who will readily pay for Guac and thinks that avocado toast is life, four universities are looking for you.
Researchers at Loma Linda University, Penn State, Tufts University, and the University of California, Los Angeles, pay you avocados for six months every day.
It seems too good to be true, but it's not a feat. This is for science.

Avocados are a rich source of healthy fats that can help cholesterol, but there is concern that this fruit is not as healthy as it seems.

A study in the Journal of the American Heart Association found that replacing saturated fats with an avocado may cause lower blood pressure every day. Penn State researchers plan to investigate this idea by monitoring not only the effects on abdominal fats but also the health results associated with cardiovascular disease.
Every university is looking for 250 avocado lovers who are willing to eat one avocado a day or two a month.
To qualify, you must be 25 years or older and measure at least 35-40 inches around the waist, depending on gender. You will also need to attend clinical visits to the campus, undergo two abdominal MRI scans, and attend a monthly nutritional interview.
However, you can not participate if you are pregnant, nursing, or planning to become pregnant.
Participants will receive $ 300 and 24 avocados at the end of the study to enjoy at leisure.
Once all data is collected, Wake Forest University will perform the final analysis and deliver results, Loma Linda University reported.
