Do you love to eat avocados?  I mean do you really love to eat avocados?

Researchers at Loma Linda University, Pen

n State, Tufts University and the University of California, Los Angeles are each looking for people to join a study about avocados to determine if they have super food properties.

The study – “The Habitual Diet and Avocado Trial” – is examining if the fatty fruit can help with weight loss.

Researchers say avocados contain the highest fat content of any fruit and thus it seems illogical to think they might actually help people lose their belly fat.

Fox News is reporting that the colleges are trying to recruit a total of 1,000 participants to help them determine the real value of the avocado.

If selected you’ll be required to required to eat either one avocado every day for six months, or eat only two avocados per month for six months.

To qualify for the study, which is funded by the Hass Avocado Board, you must be 25 years or older and measure 35 to 40 inches around the waist, depending on gender. You also need to be available to attend clinical visits on campus, undergo two abdominal MRI scans and attend monthly dietary meetings.

Those chosen for the study will received $300 at the end of the six months and 24 avocados.
