In brief: Yes
It's pretty hard to get too much fiber from food alone unless you're living on only bread or eat too much of a few very fibrous, undigestable foods.
Usually, too much fiber occurs from overuse of fiber supplements - pill or powder form. You may get diarrhea since fiber draws in more water into the colon.
