LOS ANGELES (CNN) – If you're the kind of person who willingly pay extra for Guac and thinks that avocado toast is life, four universities are looking for you.
Researchers from Loma Linda University, Penn State Tufts University and the University of California, Los Angeles will pay you avocados every day for six months.
It seems too good to be true, but it's not a feat. This is for science.
Researchers call it "The Habitual Diet and Avocado Trial," and according to Loma Linda, they're looking for 1,000 participants to find out if avocados actually help with weight loss.
Avocados are a rich source of heart-healthy fats that can help cholesterol, but there is concern that this fruit is not as healthy as it may seem.
"Because avocados contain the highest fat content of any fruit, it seems illogical to think of them could actually help people lose their belly fat," Loma Linda University reported.
Dr. Joan Sabate, director of the University's Center for Nutrition, Lifestyle and Disease Prevention, said the study ̵
Each university seeks 250 avocado lovers who are willing to eat one avocado a day or two a month
To qualify, you must be 25 or older and measure at least 35 to 40 inches around the waist, depending on gender. You will also need to attend clinical visits to the campus, undergo two abdominal MRI exams, and attend a monthly nutritional session.
However, you can not participate if you are pregnant, nursing, or planning to become pregnant.
Participants will receive you at the end of the study each $ 300 and 24 avocados for you to enjoy.
Once all data is collected, Wake Forest University will perform the final analysis and deliver results, Loma Linda University reported.
