Re: Too much fiber
Food for thought
Whole grain fiber has been tested in a clinical trial called "the Diet and Reinfarction Trial (DART)" This study included 2,033 men who had previously suffered a heart attack and compared a high-fiber group with a control group. The high-fiber group ate whole grains and doubled their grain fiber intake from 9 to 17 grams per day.
The result? The number of deaths in the high-fiber group was 22 percent higher over the two-year study— 9.9 percent of the control group died versus 12.1 percent of the high-fiber group.
As to your question on what optimal intake of fiber is, I would recommend 1% of total energy intake be fiber, specifically resistant starch and pectin which is your fruit and veggies. I would avoid wheat and beans.

Bumping this thread bc I have bad constipation which I believe is stemming from too much fiber and not enough water. I may be in similar situation to op without enough fat in general and too much fiber. I have one quest bar a day. Sometimes I have two (rarely-maybe once a week I will have two quest bars in one day) I eat lots of green veg and beans. I sometimes have black bean pasta too (high fiber) All this on top of my one daily quest bar. I will make an effort to reduce fiber and increase fats. My sources are currently avocado, coco and olive oil, light Swiss cheese, animal protein fats

Fats do stimulate bowel movement upon ingestion, but slow transit time while digesting. Really I say just keep them where you like them.
You ate getting plenty of soluble fiber but try to swap out for more insoluble.
Bran/flax are great for this, flax would also add healthy fats, and both carry some magnesium.
Or some people have luck with psyllium
In any scenario more fluid never hurts
