How to grow Taller
Although caring for your body can help you grow, your height is determined primarily by your genetics. Once your growth plates have fused, it will stop growing, which usually occurs between ages 14 and 18. If you are still growing, good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle can help you grow. In addition, you may be able to increase your height by approximately 0.5 to 2 inches (1.3 to 5.1 cm) by stretching your spine daily.
Change your diet
Adopt a healthy and nutritious diet to help your body grow. Good nutrition is essential to reach your height potential, which is the highest that your body can develop. Prepare your meals around fresh vegetables, fruits and lean proteins. Fill half of your plate with vegetables, a quarter of your plate of lean protein and a quarter of your plate of complex carbohydrates. Try fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products.
Lean proteins include chicken, turkey, fish, beans, nuts, tofu and low-fat dairy products.
Complex carbohydrates include whole grains and starchy vegetables, such as potatoes.
Add more protein to your diet. Proteins help your body develop a healthy body mass, such as muscles. This can help you be the best. Eat protein at each meal and include them in your snacks.
For example, you can eat yogurt for breakfast, tuna for lunch, chicken for dinner and cheese for snack.
Eat an egg every day if you are not allergic to it. Young children who eat an entire egg every day may become taller than others. Eggs contain proteins and vitamins that promote healthy growth. They are also a cheap meal and easy to add to your diet. Eat an egg with 1 meal a day to eventually help you be taller.
Ask your doctor if it is safe for you to eat an egg every day.
Consume a serving of dairy products every day to support your growth. Dairy products contain protein, calcium and vitamins to nourish your body. Although milk is an excellent option, yogurt and cheese are also excellent sources of dairy products. Add 1 serving of your favorite dairy product to your daily diet.
For example, drink 240 ml of milk, eat 180 ml of yogurt or eat a slice or 28 g of cheese.
Take calcium and vitamin supplements if your doctor tells you that it is okay. Supplements can help you grow by meeting your nutritional needs. Calcium and vitamins A and D are particularly important because they support bone strength. Talk to your doctor to find out if the supplements are right for you.
For example, you can take a daily multivitamin and calcium supplement.
Keep in mind that vitamins will not make you grow more than your genes allow.
