    with/because of

    Are these sentences correct:

    1-With his being overweight, he has to avoid fattening food
    2-With his being overweight, he avoids fattening food.

    3-With his high cholestrol, he tries to eat healthy food.
    4-With his high cholestrol, he eats healthy food.

    In all of them, "with" is supposed to mean "because of".

    First set: Both work, but I favor the first sentence.

    Second set: Again, both could work, but I prefer the first sentence.
