People get pay USD 300 per month only to eat avocado for six months


IllustrationIllustration - A study conducted by Loma Linda University, Penn State University, Tufts University, and University of California will pay you USD 300 to consume avocados every day for six months. In addition, there is an additional 'gift' in the form of 24 avocados for each participant.

The study entitled "The Habitual Diet and Avocado Trial" is looking for 250 participants to find out whether avocados can help you lose weight or not. However, not everyone can participate in the study. There are several conditions that must be met to participate in the study.

In addition to having to be 25 years and over, you should also have a health check up by undergoing two MRI abdomen scans and willing to take a nutritional diet.

Avocados are one of the 'prima donna' fruits for diet lovers. Besides containing vitamins A, B, C, D, and K, avocados are also rich in important nutrients such as iron, phosphorus, magnesium, and potassium. In addition, avocados are also known to be rich in fat which is good for heart health.

"The high fat content makes the view that avocados can help weight loss become illogical" said researchers from Loma Linda University, quoted from CNN.

Because of that, Director of Loma Linda University's Center for Nutrition, Lifestyle and Prevention, Dr. Joan Sabate, said that the study would verify whether eating one avocado per day really could help weight loss. In addition, research will also test other avocado benefits for cardiovascular or heart disease.
