I was curious if anyone knows if too much fiber can make things harder? Someone told me that. Also, what would happen if you had over the recommended daily intake of fiber?

I have the same question. If anyone could be of help, it would be appreciated. My mother was horrified when I told her I was taking five fiber pills a day and suggested that the pills were causing a 'blockage.' I just started an experiement yesterday of two pills (the recommended dose) a day. If I see a change, I'll let you know.

It may depend on the person. I've given up on the supplements and changed my diet. I eat 100% fruit at lunch. My snack foods and breakfast are cereals based on oat bran or a bread I make with oat bran/bananas. My fiber intake is way above what's considered normal but it lets me go to the bathroom every 2-3 days.
