How to Grow Taller

Updated on January 29, 2012

How to Grow Taller

Wouldn’t it be great just to grow an inch or two taller even though it’s barely noticeable? This can happen as long as you’re still in your growing age, which is around 25 years of age for men and around 21 years of age for women. People have grown using these methods without even knowing it.

First things first, which is nutrition. Start off by eating at least 4 medium meals a day instead of 3 big deals. Every meal you should drink a glass of milk and eat lots of dark leafy green vegetables for calcium and Vitamin D. If you are lactose intolerant then drink fortified soy milk or take a Calcium + Vitamin D supplement. Also, take a multi-vitamin supplement in the morning. This will ensure your body gets all the nutrients it needs to function.

Next is to sleep for 8-10 hours each night. However, that isn’t enough. You must also sleep before 12 AM midnight. Sleep 10 hours if you’re a kid (10-15 years old), 9 hours if you’re a teen (15-20 years old), and 8 hours if you’re an adult (20-25 years old).

Do some growth stretching exercises. Do exercises such as pull ups, chin ups, lower back extensions, hanging crunches, hanging leg raises, lat pull down, and many more 2-3 times a week. These exercises would help you stretch your muscles, tendons, and even bones so that you may grow taller.

Play sports that require reaching for something high such as basketball. When playing basketball try to drunk. This will help you stretch up to grow taller. Also, play with tall people because playing with tall people will influence your unconscious mind to make you grow taller to be like them (which is known as social psychology, more specifically, social proof).

Do not masturbate more than once a month for both men and women. Masturbating a lot (for men) will make you lose your nutrients in your body because when you excrete your semen (sperm + nutrients) your nutrients will flow out of your body along with the sperm. Thus, if your body doesn’t have the nutrients it needs, then it cannot grow. As for women, masturbating more than once a month can slow down your growth, although it’s difficult to say. However, do not breastfeed when still in the growing period (which is up to 21 years of age) because the nutrients in your milk will flow out of your body, depriving you of the necessary nutrients to grow. But if you must breastfeed your babies, then do it anyway and make sure to eat more nutritious meals.
