We all know that our bodies need fiber and even though there are many foods that have fiber added to them, many people still suffer from its deficiency. For example, the new diet that is prevalent in the West today has caused many Americans to face severe fiber deficiency. Experts estimate that only 5% of Americans get enough fiber each day. Foods that are high in fiber make a person resistant to cancer, heart disease, diverticular disease, kidney stones, premenstrual syndrome and obesity and are also beneficial for the health of the digestive system.
The amount of fiber in avocado depends on its type and can vary from one type to another.

Florida avocados have more insoluble fiber than California avocados. In addition to fiber, avocados are rich in healthy oils that help lower blood cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease.
