While the study is funded by the Haas Avocado Board, Sabaté says the study won't tip its results to favor the avocado promoters. There are also looking for participants not to eat an avocado a day for six months. But could avocados, in general, help you lose weight? It's aimed at uncovering how avocado consumption affects cardiovascular health, blood sugar, body fat, and a slew of other factors, per the study.

Breastfeeding mothers can not participate in the study which will also be carried out by three other universities; Penn State, Tufts University and the University of California.

There are age and weight qualifications for those interested in signing up. These would recruit 250 more participants each for the study.

"The study will examine whether eating one avocado per day reduces visceral adipose fat in the abdomen", Joan Sabaté, director of Loma Linda University's Center for Nutrition, Lifestyle and Disease Prevention, said in a statement.

In addition to being told to eat avocados, peek participants obtain a kickback at the dwell of the six-month peek: $300, plus obviously free avocados "either one day of the peek or after the peek completion". Whereas, the control group will not be allowed to eat more than two avocados per month during the timeframe.
