Mango is a good source of both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. Research indicates that soluble fiber is an important component in weight loss because it entraps food, sugar, cholesterol and fats in the stomach, slows their absorption by the body and carries them out through the digestive tract. Fiber also has a satiating effect - leading to consumption of less calories.
