No, you don't transfer the "di" this way. The natural way of writing the sentence would be, "I admit having eaten a lot today." or "I admit I ate a lot today."

While I cannot translate your Italian, I can say that in English, we do not say "admit of" something. We say "admit to" something. For example, "I admit to eating a lot." However, "I admit that I eat a lot" is probably more common. Also, "I admit eating a lot" is not a complete sentence in English.
