Is it possible to eat too much fiber?

Yes, of course. If you consume well over 50 grams of fiber daily, you can experience constipation, abdominal pain, acid reflux or dehydration. You can also not get the benefits of vitamins, minerals, and prescription drugs if you consume them along with too much fiber. But, these are usually due to eating too much fiber too quickly, or taking too many fiber supplements. It’s hard to consume that much fiber, so unless you experience symptoms, you likely do not need to worry about overindulging in fiber.
