    Wow - good for you! I have no clue how much I get, but I know it's a fair bit - I get about 10g at breakfast and then have fibrous veggies at every other meal and my fat choices typically have fiber in them too. I know I'm getting a lot, so the actual number I don't concern myself with too much.

    Wow. I guess if it works for you. 25-30 seems to keep everything moving for me. I can't imagine quadrupling it.

    ......HOW?

    If you aren't supplementing, let's work with a relatively high-fiber food to figure out how many cals you are eating...

    Oatmeal: 1/2 cup (dry) - ~150 calories, 4 grams of fiber.

    25 servings * 150 = 3750 cal, 100 grams fiber

    Even if you were eating nothing but a fairly high-fiber food like oatmeal, you'd have to eat 12.5 cups of oatmeal daily to get that much fiber, and you'd be eating a pretty good number of calories (3750).

    IF you aren't supplementing with a SEPERATE fiber supp...I see NO way this is possible.

    How many calories are you eating and WTF foods are you eating?

  6. Oatmeal not really a high fiber food, when you compare calories and grams of fiber per serving to, say, veggies or beans.

    I mean, a 3oz serving of spinach has 3g total carbs, 2 of which are fiber, so it has next-to-no calories, just phytonutrient goodness. I'll eat 10-12oz of spinach at a time, usually along with lots of other veggies that all contain high amounts of fiber too, so it adds up. Do that 6-8 times a day with various veggies and I get a lot of fiber.

    Additionallly, some kinds of beans have about 14g fiber per serving, avocado can have up to 17g per fruit, and coconut and other nuts are practically all fiber, in terms of their carb content. So it's just a matter of what you eat - it would be hard to hit 100 w/just grains, but it's doable with other kinds of food from the plant kingdom.

    wheat pasta has 10grams of fiber per serving. that's a lot of it

    Using punctuation would have been a good start.
