If you're slightly obsessed with the light, creamy goodness that are avocados and you're also strapped for cash then boy do I have the perfect solution for you.
Researchers at Loma Linda University, Penn State, Tufts, UCLA and Wake Forest University are literally paying people to make avocados a part of their daily diet for six months straight. I mean let's lay this out, avocados are amazing but expensive and you can eat them for free and get paid for it... so what are you waiting for!?
The Universities are looking for 250 participants each for a study that is looking at if the consumption of avocados does, in fact, impact the amount and distribution of fat in the body. So let's get this show on the road, let's see if you can check off all these requirements:
1. Are you 25 years of age or older?
2. If you're a male is your waist measurement at least 40 inches? If you're a female is your waist measurement at least 35 inches around?
If you answered yes to both of those questions then you're good to go! Here's how you can sign up.
1. Visit the Habitual Diet and Avocado Trial website to sign up.
2. Once there you'll need to fill out a simple short screening to begin the consideration process. Once submitted researchers will select their lucky avocado-eaters. As of right now though the website recommends possible testers to revisit the site in two weeks due to the overwhelming submissions they've received.
Again, what are you waiting for?
