Penn State University, Tufts University, and UCLA are also participating in the study and recruiting their own participants. Sabanté will select 250 participants to be placed in two groups: a test group that is given 16 avocados every two weeks and instructed to consume one avocado per day for six months, and a control group which can not consume more than two avocados per month during the study period.
The announcement was made in the news section of Loma Linda University's website last August 28.
Researchers want to find out if eating avocados actually promotes weight loss.
Females, on the other hand, must measure at least 35 inches around the waist.
Sabaté told the site that LLU and three other American universities will evaluate the theory in a six-month trial, meaning that 1,000 people will take part in the experiment.
Once the research is finished, the participants will then be given $300 (P16,000) each, with those in the control group receiving an extra 24 avocados for themselves.

Loma Linda isn't the only school that will get people to join.
According to Sabaté, participants will be randomly assigned to one of two groups.
Participants will be given a free MRI and health screening and asked to attend a monthly meeting with a dietician.
While the study is funded by the Haas Avocado Board, Sabaté says the study won't tip its results to favor the avocado promoters. "We are rigorous in our selection of projects", he stated on LLU's website.
