I have started eating about 30 grams or more of fiber a day. Wheat bread, cereals, and vegetables. But my stools are loose. What can I do more to bulk?

In brief: Normal

If you have a large fiber content of the diet, it is normal for your stools to be very soft or even loose.
Some of the vegetables or fruits may also have a mild laxative effect (are you taking prunes?).
