    Use of 'for' or 'to'

    Which sentence is grammatically correct?

    I eat 3 bananas every day 'to' fulfill my daily dietary requirements

    I eat 3 bananas every day 'for' fulfilling my daily dietary requirements

    Could someone please elaborate on the rules of usage of 'to' and 'for'

    Thanks,

    Re: Use of 'for' or 'to'

    IMO, the first one is more natural.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    Welcome to the forums, TribuneEditor.

    We answer specific questions on usage, as charliedeut just did.

    We don't spend time elaborating on usage when the information is out there already. Click here to read about 'to' and then change the headword to 'for'.
