35 grams According to the American Heart Association, the average American takes in 15 grams of fiber. Several organizations recommend 25 - 30 grams a day. The American Dietetic association recommends 25 - 35 grams a day. If your intake is 15 grams or less and you want to increase your fiber intake, increase it gradually. If you jump from 15 to 35 grams a day, it may cause stomach cramping and gas.

25 to 40 grams per day, be sure to increase your water intake as well. 25 % should be soluble (easily dissolved) 5% insoluble. The typical person eats 12 to 15 grams per day. Fiber supplements (Fibersure, Benefiber,etc.) can be taken to help achieve your goal.
