    Which is correct, Er ist zu dick, weil er zuviel Süßes isst, or Er ist zu dick, weil er zu viel Süßes isst?

    Before the spelling reform it was spelt "zuviel" but nowadays "zu viel" is the correct spelling.

    Thanks. To have undertaken a "spelling reform" was an extraordinary (and in my view, somewhat suspect) venture.
