How much is too much?

Does Too Much Fiber Equal Trouble?

A well-balanced diet means eating a lot of vegetables and fiber (duh!). And eating a lot of fibrous foods can—let’s be frank—make you a bit… gassy (another big duh!). Not only can it be pretty uncomfortable, but it can become a bit of a social hazard. Believe us, we know. No one wants a new nickname that rhymes with “party.”

But never fear! If you increase your fiber intake by only 1 to 3 grams of extra fiber a day (eventually building up to a total of 20 to 35 grams of fiber a day), your body will adjust to this new, good-for-you, high-fiber diet and produce less gas. In the meantime, you can always try paying a visit to the pharmacy for some over-the-counter relief.
