    Are these two sentences correct ?

    Hi there,

    Are these two sentences correct and natural for native speakers ?

    1. Your charge $25 is reasonable for someone from developing country like me, which shows that you are a good Samaritan.

    2. The diet can make you slim without exercise. Having said that, however, exercise is important too

    For sentence 2, can I delete ''however and/or too'' ?

    Many thanks

    1. Your charge of $25 is reasonable for someone from developing country like me, which shows that you are a good Samaritan. It's correct with "of". It's natural enough.

    2. The diet can make you slim without exercise. Having said that, however, exercise is important too

    For sentence 2, can I delete ''however and/or too'' ? Delete either "however" or "Having said that", leave "too".

    Many thanks
    Bhai.
