Maintain healthy eating patterns.
Eating quickly can wreak havoc on digestion. Instead, try to eat small meals regularly throughout the day to get your body used to a schedule. Try to eat at about the same time each day, and never overload your stomach. Slow down your eating pace during mealtime: Sit, relax, and take time to chew your food. Try to avoid on-the-run (or over-the-kitchen-sink) eating. Think of these healthy habits as time invested in training your digestive system to behave.
