But before you take steps on your own, see a dietitian to get a schedule set up. ...Read more

preferably outdoors, not on a treadmill for 30 minutes three times a week is sufficient.
It is desirable to also add resistance exercises, using weights as comfortably tolerated. For best results, combine aerobic and resistance exercises. Lunges and squats are said to increase gh. ...Read more

You decide: Ignore the "ideal weight" subscience numbers. Your best weight is what looks and feels right to you and enables you to keep up in the fitness-sports you enjoy with your peers. Someone else can teach you to calculate the body mass index, but this is for non-athletes; track and field stars are "underweight" and bodybuilders / hollywood studs are all "overweight" or "obese". ...Read more

I want make my body some more taller. Now my hight is 63 inc and my body weight 60 kg so what is the best medicine for that?

Acceptance: There is no medicine to make a 29-year-old man taller, because his bony growth plates have closed. Instead, accepting your body as it is, is the best medicine you can take for your life. Your life waits for you to move on from concerns about height, and into your higher calling. I don't know what that is, but you do.
