Finally, eating all those avocados has paid off.
Several universities, including Loma Linda University School of Public Health, Pennsylvania State University, Tufts University, the University of California Los Angeles and Wake Forest University, are teaming up to research avocados and their effects on weight loss – and they need participants.
The institutions are calling on 1,000 participants to take part in the six-month trial, which will answer the question every millennial wants to know: whether or not eating one avocado per day reduces visceral adipose fat in the abdomen. Okay, maybe not every millennial.
To qualify for the study, you need to be at least 25 years old, and willing to eat one avocado per day for six months as part of the test group or two avocados per month for six months as part of the control group.

Men must be at least 40 inches around their waist, while women must measure at least 35 inches.
If eating avocados for science isn’t enough, participants will also be paid $300 plus free MRI and health screenings. Yes, that $300 can be put towards additional avocados.
