Hi everyone,

I have a sentence in English: "You should cut down on the amount of fattening food that you eat."

that I'd like to translate to German and I came up with this:

"Sie sollten Fettigkeiten, die Sie essen, einschränken."

So, what do you think about it?

Thanks in advance!

    "You should cut down on the amount of fattening food that you eat."

    "Sie sollten Fettigkeiten, die Sie essen, einschränken."
    You can't put it like that I'm afraid.

    There is no noun "Fettigkeiten" in German. You will have to use something like "fetthaltige Lebensmittel".

    I guess there is not the translation for your sentence and you should refrain from translating it too literally.

    - Sie sollten weniger sehr fetthaltige Lebensmittel essen.

    - Sie sollten den Verzehr fetthaltiger Lebensmittel einschränken.
