According to the study's website, it's called HAT - Habitual Diet and Avocado Trial. The other half, a control group, will be required to eat no more than two avocados per month during the same period. But could avocados, in general, help you lose weight?

For the study, researchers are mainly looking to prove whether the heart-healthy fats contained in avocados are good for reducing abdominal fats, blood pressure, and the effects of cardiovascular disease. However, they are still looking for people who live near the campuses of Penn State University, Tufts University in MA, and the University of California, Los Angeles.

There are age and weight qualifications for those interested in signing up.

You also have to measure at least 40 inches around the waist if you're a man or measure at least 35 inches around the waist if you're female.

Each person taking part in the study will receive a free MRI and health screening and will be required to meet with a dietician once a month. "We are rigorous in our selection of projects", he stated on LLU's website. Members of the group that only eats two avocados a month will also get 24 of them post-study to enjoy as they please.
