    I place a high value on my health

    Hello

    Is it correct to use "place a high value" like this? And also do you say "put something into your stomach"?

    Is this sentence okay?

    I have always placed a high value on my health and consequently what I put into my stomach.

    The second half doesn't really work for me. You're saying you place a high value on what you put in your stomach (talking of that, why don't you just say "eat"?)
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    No. You're still saying that you place a high value on what you eat. I don't think that's what you mean. I would expect something like "I have always valued my (good) health and, consequently, I'm very careful/picky/choosy with what I eat".

    I have always placed a high value on my health and consequently I am really picky about what I put into my stomach.

    Re: I place a high value on my health

    And now you've gone back to "what I put into my stomach" instead of "what I eat". Try to look again at all my suggestions and combine them into one sentence.
