I guess for being age 19 I need to intake about 35-40 grams of fiber. As for my veggie intake, I eat about at least 6 servings, which is about I think 3 cups of veggies, I usally at least eat 4-5 cups.
But per serving of some of the canned things, or bagged says 2 grams of dietary fiber per serving. Is this right or is the fiber in the carb count?
Also in my oatmeal I get about 7 grams of dietary fiber+ I have a gritz/bran mix thing that gives me I know 10 grams of fiber..
Just trying to make sure that I am getting enough...was thinking of getting the benefiber, but then I realize that eating veggies is probally way better for me then that...

Fiber needs depend on the person. If you're having regular, good bowel movements, then I don't think you'll need to add more. Some vegetables have more fiber than others. Fiber is a carbohydrate, I believe. You can't digest it though.
