Green Gig: Get Paid to Eat Avocados

At the completion of the study, all participants will receive $300, and the control group will get a bonus of 24 avocados to compensate them for abstaining from the nutritious fruit. Researchers are offering the chance to earn money just by eating avocados every single day - all in the name of science.

A team composed of researchers from four USA colleges is seeking subjects interested in being paid to eat avocados for six months.

If you are a fan of avocados, this is definitely the story for you.

Funnily enough, the study is funded by the Hass Avocado Board, an agriculture promotion group who aim to "promote the consumption of Hass Avocados in the United States".

The four school are recruiting 250 participants each, for a total of 1,000 participants in the study.

Participants must be at least 25 years old and must not already eat more than two avocados a month, according to the website.

Two groups will be tested - one will be eating one avocado a day while the control group will eat two or fewer per month during the same period - to see which group loses the most weight around their middles.

Tufts University is pairing with three other universities - Loma Linda University, Pennsylvania State University, and University of California, Los Angeles - to evaluate the effects of avocados on a person's body-fat levels.

Participants will be randomly assigned to one of two groups.

Those who make it into one of the two groups will receive a free health screening and must attend a monthly meeting with a dietitian.
