I’ve heard many rumors about growing taller. Drink more milk, eat certain vegetables. Sleep more. Don’t do heavy lifting.
I’m 17 years old, and I am 5 ft 7 inches tall. I haven’t really grown much in the past 2 years (at most 1-2 inches), but I am hoping to get a huge growth spurt that will hopefully get me to at least 6 ft.
I’ve heard rumors about ways to grow taller. People say to drink lots of milk because of the calcium. But couldn’t you just take calcium supplements? I’ve also heard (and seen on TV) that spinach (Popeye) and other vegetables help you grow. Furthermore, I’ve heard that sleeping more helps you grow (and I’m pretty sure it’s true based on how my friends grow so much during the summer when they can sleep alot more). I’ve also heard that lifting heavy weights can prevent you from growing because of all the stress it puts on your muscles and bones. However, I have no idea what’s true and what’s false.
Does anyone have any “theories” or ideas of how I can possibly grow taller? Are there any supplements or products I can take (legal) that can result in growth?
And are any of the rumors that I’ve heard true?
