Hi, thanks again for reply to last letter - hopefully this is the last. Can 1 take to much fibre in a day???

Dear Desperate
Yes it is possible to overdo fibre intake which would result in mineral deficiencies and cause diarrhoea and excessive bloating. Stick to having about 20g of fibre per day.
Best regards
