    will or going to?

    Hi! I would appreciate some help with the following example:

    "A:This ice cream is so delicious that I’ve eaten two bowls of it!
    B: Don’t eat anymore. You______________be sick."

    While discussing it with my students, some of they said that 'are going to' must be used, because two bowls is actually the evidence. However, others replied that there are people who can eat a lot more, so actually it's simply B's opinion; therefore 'will' is the right answer.

    What do you think?
    Thanks in advance.

    Re: will or going to?

    I don't see much difference between the two answers. They are both B's opinions.

    I suggest for the answer: "You might get sick."

    There should be a space after "A:".
    "Anymore" should be "any more".

    "Some of they" should be "some of them".
    "Therefore" should start a new sentence.
