Although the study has been much taco-d about in the last few days, there are still spaces for those who qualify, a spokesperson for Loma Linda University said Thursday. Now there's a way to not only get free avocados, but also get paid to eat them.
To participate you must be aged 25 years or older and have a waist size of 35 to 40 inches (depending on gender).
"The test group will be given 16 avocados every two weeks and be required to eat one avocado per day throughout the six-month study". Despite the fat content, researchers are actually hypothesizing that moderate avocado consumption could promote weight loss.
Here's a ripe offer: a new research study is enlisting 1,000 people to eat an avocado every day for six months, and get paid for it. In addition, you must attend the scheduled medical examination on the campus and monthly meetings with a nutritionist and undergo two magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Penn State researchers plan to examine this idea by monitoring not just the effects on abdominal fats but the health outcomes related to cardiovascular disease.
