My favorite underrated tip, is chewing 30 times before swallowing. I cannot stress how important this is in stimulating digestion ensuring HCl stomach acid and digestive enzymes are released. It also takes a huge burden off of the stomach and pancreas helping prevent downstream symptoms such as flatulence and bloating.
My next favorite is leaving 3-5 hours between meals; this helps stimulate something called the migratory motor complex, which "housecleans" the stomach so to speak ensuring no food is stuck to the sides of the intestines, preventing diverticulosis, and lessening constipation.
My third favorite, well actually they are all equally my favorites, but it is drinking water throughout the day. The body is composed of 50-75% water so it is incredibly important to flush old water out with fresh, clean water. Keep in mind the kidneys like just the right amount of water - too much water (>1liter) or too little water can cause damage so aim for ~ 1cup / hour (this includes herbal teas or water infusions) or if you want a nice flush of toxins liberated throughout the night drink ~2-3cups (500-750ml) upon waking.
