yoghurt, cheese, and boiled chicken. Your bones need phosphorus, calcium, and magnesium while your muscles need water, protein and carbohydrates to grow. Since you are growing taller, both your muscles and bones are getting bigger and longer. Don't waste your money or your health on drugs, alcohol or cigarettes.

Have the hair style that makes you appear taller. In order to appear taller, a hair style should be thin at the sides and higher up top, which can make you appear as much as an inch taller Avoid clothes with horizontal lines. Belts are horizontal so make sure you conceal it in your clothes.
Avoid clothes with a tartan or checked pattern. Avoid cuffs that makes your legs appear shorter.

• Wear clothes with vertical lines or striping. Vertical lines make a person appear thinner,
and thinness in turn gives impression of more height.

Wear shoes that will make you appear taller. If you are a female, this should be easy since you can find a lot of female shoes with 2 or 3 inches’ heels. For males, wear shoes with thick soles to add the illusion of height.

To increase your height, it is important that your blood is oxygenated as blood provides nourishment to your bones. Regular breathing will also purify your blood. There are three phases to breathing:
1. Inhaling - take in air into your body through the nose
2. Retaining - hold your breath inside your body
3. Exhaling - blow out air from your body through the mouth

It is during deep sleep that growth hormone does its job of thickening and lengthening your bones. So appropriate sleeping time (not the longer, the better) and correct sleeping posture is very important for your body to grow. Sleep is defined as a natural periodic state of rest for the mind and body, in which the eyes usually close and consciousness is completely or partially lost, so that there is a decrease in bodily movement and responsiveness to external stimuli.

During deep sleep, growth hormone produced by your pituitary gland is released into your blood stream and travel through your body and causes the thickening and lengthening of your bones. Therefore, you should achieve "deep level" sleep on a daily basis in order to coordinate your affords of exercises and proper diet. The following are some helpful tips on how to easily achieve deep level sleep.

Sleep in a comfortable and firm mattress.
Sleep in a room that is dark, quiet and fresh smelling.
Sleep with clean, soft, and comfortable clothes.
Keep your hands and feet warm. Scientific studies have shown that warm hands and feet will help induce REM (rapid eye movement) deep sleep. Cold hands and feet will keep you from deep sleep.
Drink a big glass of water before going to bed and when you wake up; this will help clean out your system.
Practice total relaxation and deep breathing for a few minutes before you go to bed.
Relax from head to toe. Close your eyes and relax every part of your body.
Maintain a habit of sleeping at the same time everyday, including weekends.
Sleep on your back with a flat pillow under your knees. This will align your spine properly and prevent any back aches caused by sleeping in a bent position.

Undoubtedly, the quality, quantity, and type of food we eat affect our height, growth, and health. We cannot emphasize enough how important your food intake is in determining how much growth you can possibly obtain. The types of food you eat will either improve or decrease your growth potential.
After careful consideration and research, the daily content of protein, carbohydrates, fats and water can be achieved if the following items were taken regularly.

Carrots Fish Liver
Egg Yolk Beef Red Meat
Milk Cheese Apples
Green Vegetables Potatoes Nuts
Yellow Vegetables Almonds Bananas
Peanuts Chicken Beans
Peas Salt 6-8 glasses of water per day

If you eat a lot of peanut butter, your height will not necessarily stop. Neither does masturbation stop height.
What might stop you from growing is smoking, drugs, alcohol, lack of sleep, stress, digestive problems, or lack of exercises.

    • Eat an apple or banana soon after you wake up to give your body a boost of energy for a morning exercise.
    • Exercise for at least 30 minutes. Cardio exercises such as running, cycling or swimming maintain a rapid heart rate while minimizing impact on the body. Exercise stimulates the prominent growth hormone found in the pituitary gland, the human growth hormone (HGH), according to Gainheight.com
    • Hang from a pull up bar for five minutes. The Growing Taller Guide website reports that hanging decompresses and elongates your spine and joints, which helps your body grow taller.
    • Eat a well-balanced breakfast. Drink orange juice, eat whole-grain carbohydrates, eggs, yogurt, milk and cheese for protein and calcium. The protein and calcium stimulate bone and muscle growth while the vitamins in the orange juice and the carbohydrates provide energy for your body throughout the day.
    • Eat a small meal every two to three hours, depending on when you get hungry. Large meals make your body release insulin to regulate blood sugar levels, which suppresses the body's human growth hormone. After small meals, your body can convert all the nutrients more easily into energy for muscle growth. Eat five to seven small meals each day instead of three large meals.
    • Eat the last meal of the day at least two hours before bedtime. Don't eat right before sleep as your body is unable to properly convert food into energy or muscle growth. Instead it is stored into fat.
    • The Growing Taller Guide recommends an exercise just before bed to strengthen your back muscles and ligaments, helping them grow. Lie down on your stomach and stretch your arms out in front of you with your palms down. Keep your legs straight and lift your right leg and left arm off the ground. Try to hold the pose for five seconds. Repeat the pose with the other leg and arm. Do this routine four times, doubling the amount of seconds you keep your limbs off the floor each time until you reach twenty seconds.

Tips & Warnings

  • Cigarettes, alcohol and drug use can stint your growth. Sleep at least eight hours a night. The body needs time to rest and regenerate.
