How much should a person eat?

Q: How much should I eat at a time and does eating more effect your taqwa?

A: Eating is based on one's need. Hence, if one perceives the need to eat, then one may eat to the extent that one's health will not be affected.

Eating more or less does not affect taqwa.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
