    eat my fill

    Hi

    Is it OK to say: I won't eat my fill with it.

    To my ears, 'eating one's fill' is usually used positively. If you mean something is not enough to satisfy your appetite, you should probably say something like that.

    Hi

    So I should say either: I will eat my fill with it OR It's not enough to satisfy my appetite.

    You don't normally 'eat your fill' with anything: 'There's plenty of food, so you can eat your fill.'

    Re: eat my fill

    So when I see a lot of food at a party for example, then I can say: I'll eat my fill today!

    Thanks
