Scientists want to pay people to eat avocados for six months as part of a new project as researchers try to figure out whether the fruit trims body fat or not. Participants in one group will eat an avocado per day for six months, while those in the other will eat only two avocados per month for the same period. But if you're not, in order to qualify, you must be 25 years or older and have an at least 35-inch waist.
Participants of both groups would be paid $300 each on completion of the study.
Selected participants will get a free MRI and health screening by a university clinician and will be asked to attend a monthly meeting with a dietician.
Penn State University, and the University of California, Los Angeles, will partake in the study with LLU and will each recruit 250 people to participate in their separate studies.
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. There are also looking for participants not to eat an avocado a day for six months.
Khalil Mack Will Not Be Traded

Roxanne Pallett has left 'Celebrity Big Brother'
I don't think she is mentally fit to be in the house. 'And also you can hear everyone shouting get Roxanne out - like come on'. She said he punched her "repeatedly, unprovoked", adding in tears: "He actually punched me like a boxer would punch a bag".
However, you can't participate if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or planning pregnancy.
One medium-sized avocado contains about 322 calories, 29 grams of fat, and 13 grams of fiber.
But for more than 1,000 lucky people this fall, an Avocados-rich diet is about to be on the menu regularly - with a hefty subsidy.
Once all the data have been collected, Wake Forest University will perform the final analysis and deliver the results, Loma Linda University reported.
Since avocados are delicious, just about everyone on Twitter* (*this is an exaggeration) made a joke about volunteering for the study.
