Avocados are packed with good fats and fiber, which means they help you stay full longer," says Charlotte Roberts, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator with Cedars-Sinai. "They're also a great source of vitamins." Avocados are packed with healthy fats, dietary fiber, and other goodies your body needs.
