    How to get taller ?

    So, I have been seeing plenty of family friends' kids who were in primary school and tiny have suddenly got wayy taller than me since they have been in secondary school.

    My parents are short and I also had a growth shunt in my teenage years.I am 5ft5 and an additional 2 inches would be more than enough. Any recommendations of doing YOGA or any excercises or to trick my brain into releasing HGH ?

    just eat well.
    always rest after eating for half hour
    yoga should help too.

    Someone left a note on a piece of cake in the fridge that said, "Do not eat!". I ate the cake and left a note saying, "Yuck, who the hell eats paper ?

    I have been researching HGH. Amino acid supplement tablets kickstart your HGH. Natural food high in HGH starters are Watermelon and Tofu.

    You're naturally given a set number to achieve in terms of height. Sadly, without implants or substances that have more negative effects than good, you're just going to have to deal with your height.
    To be quite honest, however, being tall isn't necessarily a good thing. People with large heights generally suffer from back pain and hip displacement earlier on in life due to gravity.

    Would you feel better if there was a reason for you not to be tall i.e. in wheelchair , or would it still bother you ?

    There is one another way that Ive heard works , but it might require going overseas to get it ( no guarantee it will increase you 2 " though )

    You can pm if you wish

    Spend all day horizontal. The amount you shrink over a day is incredible

    Get extensions surgically inserted into your legs (they do do it!)

    Or, just get on with life and don't feel the need to compare your height with others, don't forget there's always someone taller then you

    Re: How to get taller ?

    Some people gain up to a couple of cm's with yoga - it will make sure your back is at its optimised flexibility and correct posture.

    Someone I went to school with was very small that he was prescribed some kind of growth hormone when he was about 12/13, he made 6' eventually.

    A close friend at 6'4 has always had an unhealthy diet, never touches fruit or vegtables even whilst we grew up - infact we both had the same diet at school, chips, patty burgers, pizzas. I went home to nice cooked food with veg and good variety and I never made 6', he went home to rubbish food of more chips and burgers and is a tower. From there on in as far as I'm concerned food has bugger all to do with it.

    Depends where it is ...no ?

    Though I'd have to agree that in general with most things balance is required- if not there's pretty good chance your going to cause some damage to yourself by falling onto your sword .

    And we wouldnt want that , would we ?

    After all you break something..

    I wouldn't bother with height if i were you, instead hit the gym and get wider, if you know what i mean.
