What will be will be: A lot depends on your genetics. Meaning, on the height of your parents etc..I do not believe you can perform any excercise or eat and food differently then what you are doing now that will help.

Unless you plan...: To take dangerous and illegal drugs, you will just grow to whatever height your specific genetics will dictate. You have maybe a year yet before the final growth plates close and you will stop growing taller.
