Speak to your doctor if you have a specific problem, but generally the recommendation is to increase fiber in the diet slowly. I think with fiber, you need to judge whether its too much for you based on how you feel. I feel great at 70+ grams of fiber a day. I actually had problems and IBS 'like' symptoms (never went to the dr., though, for a diagnosis) at a time in my life when I was eating only ~20 grams (if that). (I've been on fitday for many years, and have been tracking.)
