Loma Linda University, California is on the lookout for 250 avocado aficionados to eat large and small quantities for the study for £230.

Dr. Joan Sabaté's team at the Loma Linda University School of Public Health wants to know if the fatty fruit actually promotes weight loss by reducing belly fat.

Those selected to be part of the study will be asked to eat an avocado a day for six months, or two a month for six months. The control group will be required to eat no more than two avocados per month during the same time period.

Penn State University, Tufts University, and UCLA are also participating in the study and recruiting their own participants.

Those being studied will receive a free health screening from LLU clinicians and US$300 in compensation.

The study is being sponsored by the Hass Avocado Board, a detail that Sabaté says will not affect the findings of the research.
