    too full

    Is the following wording acceptable?

    We should maintain regular exercise. Drink a cup of hot milk or eat some snack may help our sleep, but not too full to prevent digestion problem causing interference to our sleep.

    Re: too full

    We don't "maintain exercise". The second sentence should start "Drinking ..." and the next verb should follow the pattern. You need to add some words after "but" to make a full sentence. We don't usually refer to "sleep interference". It's normally called "interrupted sleep".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
