Unlikely to happen: The growth centers of your bones determine how tall you can grow.Most growth centers will close at 16-19 years of age in males. After that happens, you can not grow taller. If your growth centers were open, a balanced diet/rest & healthy physical activity would support good growth.Their are no special diet or exercises that make you taller.

Unlikely: At 20 years of age, the growth plates of your bones--which allow for growth--are most likely closed. Further growth will be most unlikely.
