Want to get paid to do something you already do for free? Sure you do and that’s what researchers from some universities across the country are banking on. They’re looking for study participants and will be paying cash money for folks to eat avocados. How’s that for a dream gig?
The study is a group effort between Loma Linda University, Penn State University, Tufts University, and the University of California, Los Angeles and they’re trying to find out how avocado affects belly fat. Their hypothesis is that avos could help people lose stomach fat and promote weight loss - how great would that be?
The colleges are recruiting 1,000 people total, 250 from each school, to participate. Applicants need to be at least 25 and men need to have a waist 40-inches or larger and women, need a waist 35-inches or larger. Some will have to eat an avocado a day for six months, others only two avocados a month for six months, but everyone will get paid $300. Wanna sign up? Check out the fine print here.
