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.

Thank you

Hi Bill,

Actually the correct translation of 'I shouldn't have eaten so much' would be :

Je n'aurais pas dû autant manger 

Hope this helps!

Je n'aurais pas dû trop manger. 

You need the conditionel passé because the action is already in the past.
