How to increase my height and gain weight?

How to increase my height and gain weight?

Can't & supplement: At 24 there is no recommended method to increase height (except platform shoes), sorry. As to weight, unless very underweight, suggest being happy not having to struggle with excess weight and losing it (which will change on own over next 10-15 years). If insistent, can use high-calorie protein bars / snacks in addition to regular meals to add calories to your day (and figure). ...Read more

NO!!: At 22 years old, you will not grow taller. It is impossible for anyone to "make" themselves grow taller. If you want to gain weight, there are plenty of sites online that show you how to do this safely - build protein and weight train. ...Read more

Healthy choices: Eat a healthy diet and get regular exercise to control your weight. Your height is determined by your genetics and nutrition in childhood.

How to increase height i'm 22 and my height is 5.6'?

Height is done by 22: Most people reach their maximum height in their late teens. Without nutritional problems or chronic childhood illnesses, height is largely based on genetics and parental heights. Aside from eating right, exercising, sleeping well, and being happy, there's not much a person nor his doctor can do to increase height. In rare cases, growth hormone is approved for use in younger, extremely short kids. ...Read more

Is there any way to increase height after 20 for boys....?I

Unlikely to happen: Some kids continue to grow taller into their late teens or rarely early twenties but only when their bone maturity lags behind their age. If the growth centers of the long bones have fused, you cannot grow taller. A single x-ray of the wrist & hand can yield a bone maturity. When you have reached bony maturity, you are done. ...Read more

How to increase height by 2_3inches...I regularly do cycling..What other exercise should I do...Age 19?

You are full-grown: Sorry to give you disappointing news, but it is rare for girls to grow after age 16-18, in fact most girls stop growing around age 14. Bone growth is caused by "growth plates" and once the growth plates close (usually 2-3 years after puberty) the bones are unable to grow. Nothing can change this. You need to accept your current height. ...Read more

Reg Excercize & Food: If you have regular me natural cycles then your chances of increasing height has diminished. However,I do not think a special diet will help increase height. A regular regimen of excersize and a good normal diet with some extra proteins will help you maintain good health and in my opinion that will maximize your growth potential. Not worrying too much about it will also help. Wishing you the best. ...Read more

You are likely done: If you entered puberty the same time as your friends and your bone maturity is that of a 19 yo there is little you can do to increase your height.A single x-ray of your left hand can be assessed for bone maturity.If 19, you are done growing, if bony maturity is more like 15 you might grow an additional couple of inches.There are no magic solutions if your growth centers r closed. ...Read more

Is it possible to increase height after the age of 22 ? My height is 5'7.How can i increase my  height ? What type of exercises should i do externally

No: You've probably reached your full height. In most cultures, taller is a plus for a man, but it's completely overridden in the "looks" department by your muscular development and overall level of fitness. There's nothing you're going to be able to do about your height, but you can look fantastic just by spending an hour a day in the gym. Lee Priest (photo guy) is 5'2", not complaining. ...Read more

How to increase height for my two boy kids. I am short and my Husband is tall. But both my kids look short. One is 9 and another is 6 and half yr old.

Depends on genetics: Adult height is largely determined by genetic factors. Take the average of your and your husband's heights and add two inches since you have boys. You should genetically end up here, plus or minus two inches. If your boys heights fall below that threshold, see an endocrine doctor for evaluation. ...Read more
