I think how tall you can grow is decided when you are born. If you eat the right food, you can reach your height potential. If your parents are short, you will probably be short too. What's more important is appreciating who you are and not worrying about how you look. Some people are tall and some are short, but the most important thing is what kind of people they are. Do you agree?

My father is tall enough,but my mother is a little short!(not very short!)
But I am Arrow So short!
Though in my class,I am neither too tall or too short....But when I stand with others,I suddenly feel shy!

Short person,listen to me:I have heared the short person can live longer.I don't know if it is true? Wink Question

I found some useful info in internet website (http://www.network54.com/Forum/201879/ ):
Quote:
I have been interested in height and how we grow etc for a very long time.
things I find helpful:
* exercise as it produces human growth hormone which makes us grow. try to avoid weights, swimming running are good etc
* Centrum multi vitamin, l arigine and calcium magnesium zinc
* sleep you grow mainly while you sleep
* definitely don’t worry about your height, see a hypnotist if you worry that much so you can leave your body to grow.
* if you think you will grow you are more likely to if you don’t you are not likely to.

Things that aren’t useful
*Growth products are all scams they don’t work I have tried an wasted my money, as have most of you guys have, but if you haven’t I wouldn’t bother. I hope these scammers are enjoying mugging us guys off, because they get paid back!!. Even yoko Is a scam. IF YOU WANT TO SPEND YOUR MONEY I WOULD GO FOR HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE, ANY REIABLE MAKE, AS IT IS INEVITABLY WHAT MAKE US GROW.
* you do not stop growing at 15 16 18 this is complete bull****, at 15 16 you should be at your peak. You can definitely grow until you are 21 so long as you haven’t or do not abuse you body with weights, drugs, late nights, no exercise, eating bad food. Guys can grow up until they reach 25 even though it isn’t really common, but this doesn’t mean its impossible, as I know and have read about people who have grown at around or up to that age.

That means, you should live healthy and dont buy medicaments.
Also, what i can recommend to you is to do yoga exercises.

C'mon guys
You should be satified with your height.
I'm almost 18 years and a girl. My height is 182 cm and It's not always fun to be this tall. I don't mind being tall, but I'm uncomfortable in airplanes, busses etc and I keep hitting my head all the time, but that's my own fault Wink

I quite agree what you said. To be tall or be short is not totally based on you. However, if you do some exercises or keep a healthy diet, perhaps you will be taller than before. But as long as you are confident, no matter whether you are tall or not, you can have a healthy life.

jump.
I heard jump roping can help you get taller. Just jumping can help you get taller. Basketball can also help you get taller.
