I was wondering how i could grow taller and lose weight naturally?

After puberty- can't: Grow taller. If you've completed puberty you aren't likely to grow taller. Girls complete puberty by ages 15 to 17 & for boys it is by ages 16 to 17. However, if one enters puberty late, they will usually also complete it late. Our height is largely determined by genetics (our parents' height). If you are healthy (no unusual causes for stunted growth/ smaller stature) then there is not a way >>. ...Read more

You do fall into the overweight category, but are not obese (bmi would be 30 or greater). You may feel just fine at your current weight. If you gain, however, you may wish you had paid attention to this issue now - not later. ...Read more
