Well, well, well...2018 just may be the best year ever. Why? Because you can potentially get paid to eat avocados!
Loma Linda University, Penn State, Tufts University, and UCLA are looking for 250 participants for each college to conduct a study on whether eating a moderate amount of avocados promotes weight loss.
Doesn't this sound amazing? Who doesn't love avocados? The study is looking for 1,000 participants total and here are the requirements for you to participate in the 6-month trial:
- Be willing to eat one avocado per day for six months or two per month for six months
- Male participants should measure at least 40 inches around the waist.
- Female participants should measure at least 35 inches around the waist.
If you're selected to be in the study, you will be randomly assigned to one of two groups. Your group will be given 16 avocados every two weeks and MUST eat one per day throughout the six-month study.
There will be another group will be labeled "the control group". They must eat no more than two avocados a month in the same amount of time.
So if this all sounds appealing to you, sign up! You will get paid $300 and get 24 avocados. If you want to enroll, you may go to hatstudy.org/.
