Even though there is the highest percentage of fat content in this fruit many people face the problem of wanting to lose belly fat.
Considering the fact that avocados contain the highest fat content compared to any other fruit it seems completely illogical to believe that they might actually help some people lose their belly fat.
This is the hypothesis behind an upcoming study at the Loma Linda University School of Public Health. Researchers from Loma Linda University School will work in conjunction with researchers from Pennsylvania State University, Tufts University and the University of California, Los Angeles. They will spend six months to collect their findings and use participants from each of the participating universities.
The “Habitual Diet and Avocado Trial” is a part of this new study that wants to pay people to eat an avocado every day for six months provided that they meet the initial criteria. These criteria are:
"1. Be 25 years of age or older
2. Be willing to either eat one avocado per day for six months or eat only two avocados per month for the same period
3. Measure at least 40 inches around the waist if they are male, or
4. Measure at least 35 inches around the waist if they are female."

If all goes well it also means getting an opportunity to eat an avocado every day for six months without having to spend any money whatsoever on avocados. This is something that will definitely pique the interest of avocado lovers!
A thousand research subjects (or 250 people per campus) will be split into two groups. One group of subjects will eat an avocado every day for six months while subjects in the other group will eat only two avocados per month over the same period.
All in all participants stand to benefit greatly from this research. Either they get their fill of free avocados or they will they will lose their belly fat. Hopefully both can happen! This certainly is something to look forward to, won’t you say?
