    eat

    Here is a sentence:I'm really going to eat healthy.
    Does it mean "I'm really going to become healthy by eating."?
    Thanks for your help.

    Re: eat

    to eat healthy means to consume nutritious food moderately and practise good eating habits which contribute to good health.
    One can eat healthy by many ways such as consume less greasy and sweet food,eat more vegetables and fruits or even follow the food guide pyramid.

    To my eyes, your sentence means ' I'm really going to practise good eating habits in order to stay healthy/to gain a better health' and not "I'm really going to become healthy by eating"
