how about "you want too much to eat" - was marked wrong ...

That's what I put, too.

So, the difference in English would be...

You want too much to eat. <-- indicates someone wants a large volume of food.

You want to eat too much. <-- indicates someone wants to eat too frequently.

In Latin, how would this sentence change to make that difference clear or would it change at all?

I think both should be accepted, unless someone can show a clear answer to the question above.

"You want to overeat." was not accepted. Should it be?

Does this mean 'You want (to eat too much)' or 'You (want to eat) too much'?
