    Buenos días:

    Solicito vuestra ayuda para expresar en inglés: Comer poca cantidad


    Mi intento es:

    As for the food you are lucky; they offer a healthy vegetarian food. Although the portions are small I think it isn't a problem for you since you are always on a diet and are use to eating few things.

    Pero: few things, me suena mal.

    Podría se?r: are use to eating not many. (¿A no comer mucho?)

    Un saludo, gracias.

    Muchas gracias a todo el mundo.

    A mi me ha gustado mucho: "eating like a bird"

    Es igual que en español. Yo lo utilizo mucho.

    Un saludo, :)
