I am not sure if there are different kinds of fiber or if I should get it from multiple sources thru out the day and not all at once or a lot at once (I get it at breakfast and lunch).
There's soluble and insoluble fiber. I don't worry about the proportions I'm getting, I just shoot for around 40 grams a day. This is a good resource:

How much should you get? This link is found on the above FAQ's thread:
