Fiber is an essential nutrient no matter what eating plan you’re following. However, many people fall short when it comes to meeting their recommended daily amount. According to Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, women should aim for about 25 grams of fiber per day, while men should target about 38 grams, or 14 grams for every 1,000 calories. Keep in mind these amounts may vary depending on your particular dietary needs.
