Fiber is an important ingredient in everyone’s diet, no matter what the shape, type or age of person you are. The Institute of Medicine suggests that the average person have at least 14 grams of a blend (soluble and insoluble) fiber for every 1,000 calories you consume in a day. A general suggestion on how much fiber you should be getting is done on the graph below (These numbers are based on a 2,000 calorie or less daily diet) :
|Ages 1 – 3 ||19g||19g|
|Ages 4 – 8 ||25g||25g|
|Ages 9 – 13 ||31g||26g|
|Ages 14 – 18||38g||26g|
|Ages 19 – 50||38g||25g|
|Ages 51 – + ||30g||219|
Now these numbers are based on a diet of 2,000 calories, which means that these numbers are different for athletes. While building lean muscle mass and reducing fat, it is imperative that athletes consume higher amounts of fiber in their diets. Athletes, body builders and fitness enthusiasts are consuming closer to 20 – 22 grams of fiber for every 1,000 calories.
