Trying to say..
I shouldn't have eaten so much...
Je n'ai devrais pas trop mangé
I know this is incorrect, but would like some guidance on how to correctly state this.
This relates to:Position of negation with two verbs (conjugated + infinitive) -
Je n'aurais pas dû trop manger.
You need the conditionel passé because the action is already in the past.

Actually the correct translation of 'I shouldn't have eaten so much' would be :
Je n'aurais pas dû autant manger
Hope this helps!
