Unfortunately, there is no way of putting inches on your frame instantly. [[Grow Taller|Growing taller]] is mostly about genetics. Between 60% and 80% of your height is determined by the DNA that your parents passed down to you, whereas about 20% to 40% of your growth is influenced by your  own environment. This means your diet, your health, how much you exercise, and how much sleep you get. Until your growth plates (the areas where your bones grow) close, you will keep growing. A good diet, healthy exercise, and lots of sleep can help you get taller in this period than you would otherwise.<ref>https://ift.tt/2ZPrDzc> For most people, however, growth plates close in their early twenties, and after that, they are not going to gain any inches naturally. Women typically stop growing around age 18 while men may stop around age 20.<ref>https://ift.tt/2XxUWJ9>

== Steps ==
  +
===Getting Taller with Diet, Vitamins and Minerals===
  +
#Eat right. A balanced diet filled with plenty of healthy nutrients will help you to grow strong and healthy and reach your full height. That means staying away from the cakes, sodas, and pizzas and reaching for the salads, whole grains, and fish. If you are having trouble motivating yourself to eat these foods, search for different recipes and look for combinations of food that you find appealing.[[Image:Get Taller Fast Step 1 Version 2.jpg|center]]
  +
#*To get a clear view of what equals a healthy balanced diet that includes protein, fruit, vegetables, grains and dairy, look at the [https://ift.tt/YUssap USDA MyPlate website].
  +
#Include lean protein in your diet. Proteins are the building blocks for the things that help you grow tall and strong, your bones, muscles and cartilage.<ref>https://ift.tt/2V8W5lw> So eating a good amount of foods from the protein foods group is important if you want to maximize your potential height. The recommended amount varies by age, gender and how much exercise you get.[[Image:Get Taller Fast Step 2 Version 2.jpg|center]]
  +
#*Girls aged 9-18 are recommended the equivalent of 5 ounces daily.
  +
#*Boys aged 9-13 are recommended the equivalent of 5 ounces daily.
  +
#*Boys aged 14-18 are recommended 6.5 equivalent ounces daily.<ref>https://ift.tt/2V8W5lw>
  +
#*Protein foods include lean meats, poultry, fish, eggs, nuts, and seeds.
  +
#Get enough vitamin D. Vitamin D helps you grow stronger bones and promotes muscle growth in children.<ref>https://ift.tt/2JXOPWF> A deficiency of vitamin D has been linked to stunted growth and even weight gain in teenage girls, a recent study has found.[[Image:Get Taller Fast Step 3 Version 2.jpg|center]]
  +
#*Foods rich in vitamin D include oily fish, mushrooms, and fortified cereals.<ref>https://ift.tt/326SxnP>
  +
#*Sunlight is the best way to get Vitamin D naturally. You only need a few minutes of sun exposure a day to get the right amount. Make sure that your skin is exposed to the sun.<Ref>https://ift.tt/2nCYKJ7>
  +
#Put zinc into your body. A zinc deficiency may stunt your growth.<ref>https://ift.tt/2JWNZJY> While taking zinc won't necessarily make you taller, it can prevent your growth from stopping early. This may help you reach your highest potential height more easily. Some foods that are good sources of zinc include:[[Image:Get Taller Fast Step 4 Version 2.jpg|center]]
  +
#*Seafood, especially shellfish.
  +
#*Lamb.
  +
#*Spinach.<ref>https://ift.tt/2YtbLkB>
  +
#Get plenty of calcium. Again, there is little direct evidence between calcium and getting taller, but calcium ''is'' an essential ingredient in helping you grow strong bones which are important for growth.<ref>https://ift.tt/2Yl0ymk>. Most of your calcium will come from dairy products. It is recommended that boys and girls aged 9-18 should consume the equivalent of three cups (or 1,300 mg) of calcium-rich dairy foods a day.<ref>https://ift.tt/2IH3K6y> [[Image:Get Taller Fast Step 5 Version 2.jpg|center]]
  +
#*Dairy products that are high in fat may be beneficial for young children.
  +
#*Cream cheese and butter are dairy foods that have little calcium.
  +
#*Alternatives to dairy products for your calcium include canned fish, leafy greens, soy products, and calcium-fortified juices, cereals and bread.<ref>https://ift.tt/2IH3K6y>
  +
#Avoid certain foods. As well as avoiding too much fatty and salty food, there are reports that some generally healthy foods might have a negative impact on your height. You should have a balanced diet, and these are not hard facts, but consider lowering your intake of soy products, tomatoes, and broad beans.<ref>http://www.naturalheightgrowth.com/2012/11/22/what-supplements-vitamins-and-pills-should-you-take-to-increase-your-height-and-grow-taller/</ref>[[Image:Get Taller Fast Step 6 Version 2.jpg|center]]
  +
#*It is more important to have a healthy and balanced diet than not eating these three things.
  +
#Consider taking vitamin supplements. You can top your intake with basic multivitamins you can buy at the store. You could also focus in on vitamin D and zinc by purchasing vitamin tablets just for these two important elements. Cod liver oil tablets are also easy to find and are an excellent source of vitamin D and great for your bones and joints.<ref>http://www.healthaliciousness.com/articles/high-vitamin-D-foods.php</ref>[[Image:Get Taller Fast Step 7 Version 2.jpg|center]]
  +
#*Other more concentrated and potentially harmful supplements, including Glucosamine, are reported to promote growth.<ref>https://ift.tt/2Utj9w0>.
  +
#*Before considering one of these supplements always talk to your Doctor.
  +
#Be wary of miracle cure products. You may come across some supplements that claim to be able to make you taller miraculously. Remember, if your plates have fused you are not going to gain inches. Some products may claim to be or contain human growth hormone (HGH) which stimulates growth. You should be very careful with this, as HGH cannot be taken as a pill and it should only ever be administered by a doctor.<ref>https://ift.tt/2eoiLtD Taller Fast Step 8 Version 2.jpg|center]]
  +
 
  +
===Exercising and Sleeping to Stimulate Growth During Puberty===
  +
#Get more sleep. Did you know you only grow when you're asleep? Your body produces human growth hormone (HGH) while you sleep. This hormone helps you develop muscle and actually grow taller. So if you're serious about getting taller, get plenty of sleep.[[Image:Get Taller Fast Step 9 Version 2.jpg|center]]
  +
#*School-age children should get between 10 and 11 hours of sleep.
  +
#*Teens and those just under 18 should get at least 9 to 10 hours of sleep.
  +
#Exercise. Whatever you do, take the time to exercise. Exercise is crucial for your healthy development and general well-being. If you want to grow tall during your teen years especially, get in the habit of exercising your body. All exercise is good, and there is no particular exercise to increase height, but doing things that involve stretching and jumping will help to lengthen your spine.[[Image:Get Taller Fast Step 10 Version 2.jpg|center]]
  +
#*Try jumping around by playing basketball or skipping.
  +
#*Try stretching out your back and limbs by swimming.
  +
#*There is no specific amount of time you should be doing this for to increase height, but the more the better.
  +
#*It is recommended that people children and adolescents should do an hour of exercise a day to be healthy.<ref>https://ift.tt/35sGFhK> To give yourself the best chance of growing taller, try to exceed this amount.
  +
#Try [[Get Taller by Stretching|stretching]]. Some stretches can help you to release your spine and improve your posture. If you stretch the first thing in the morning and the last thing at night, it can help you to become more upright, and thus make the most of your height. Some of the stretches to try include:[[Image:Get Taller Fast Step 11 Version 2.jpg|center]]
  +
#*Toe touches. Stand up straight and raise your hands up to the sky, and then reach down to touch your toes.
  +
#*Cobra stretch. Lie on your front with your hands at your sides and then push up on your hands to raise your chest and tilt back your head.
  +
#*Bridge stretch. Lie on your back with your hands at either side of you, then, pressing down on your hands, raise your abdomen off the ground to stretch your back.
  +
#Wait to grow naturally over time. If you do all of the previous steps, there's a good chance that you've given your body the best chance to grow taller. Not everyone is going to be as tall as a basketball player or a model. Being tall isn't everything, so learn to be comfortable with how you are.[[Image:Get Taller Fast Step 12 Version 2.jpg|center]]
  +
#*Some people are "late bloomers" and only hit their big growth spurt when they turn 17, 18 or beyond.
  +
#*If you are really concerned, see your pediatric endocrinologist. This doctor will be able to give you valuable information about possible medical courses you may take in order to combat low growth.
  +
 
  +
===Making the Most of Your Height===
  +
#Adjust your posture. If you've done all you can to help yourself grow taller, there are still a few things that can help you to make the [[Look Taller|most of your height]]. You may not realize just how much bad posture can affect your overall height. A slight slumping of the shoulders, leaning forward of the head and neck, and habitually standing with your weight on one leg can all subtract from your height.<ref>https://ift.tt/2Sn3MEZi-be?page=2</ref>[[Image:Get Taller Fast Step 13 Version 2.jpg|center]]
  +
#*Walk with a book on your head to train your body to keep your spine as erect as possible.
  +
#*Stand with your legs straight, and no further than hip width apart. Stick your chin up a little. Not only will it add some extra height, but it'll also make you look more confident.
  +
#*Get into the habit of sitting up straight and concentrate on contracting your abdomen muscles to help.
  +
#Go for medium or short hair. You may think that longer hair would make you look taller. But in fact, longer hair takes attention away from your neck and neckline, making you appear smaller. Instead, opt for short or medium length hair. These hairstyles will put the emphasis back on your neck.[[Image:Get Taller Fast Step 14.jpg|center]]
  +
#*If you have a fairly tall neck, these hairstyles will look great.
  +
#Streamline your look. Wearing tight-fitting clothing, such as skinny jeans, helps to accentuate the lines of your form. When you wear baggy clothing, those lines aren't really defined, making you appear more squat. Skinny jeans, especially, will define your leg length and will cling on nicely to your leg shape, attracting attention to your leg shape rather than your height.[[Image:Get Taller Fast Step 15.jpg|center]]
  +
#*For girls, wearing a slim skirt will help you accentuate the natural length of your legs.
  +
#Wear slimming colors, and vertical patterns. Slimming colors such as black, navy blue, and forest green will help you appear taller. These colors make your body appear slimmer and works for boys and girls. Going for slimming top and slimming bottom gets you double the effect. Likewise, wearing clothes with vertical lines help accentuate height.[[Image:Get Taller Fast Step 16.jpg|center]]
  +
#*For women, try out a pair of vertically striped pants, or maybe even a collared shirt.
  +
#*For men, a shirt that has narrow vertical stripes, rather than checks, can help.<ref>https://ift.tt/35qPUPH>
  +
#*Both genders should avoid the horizontally striped tees — these have the opposite effect of making you appear squatter.
  +
#Wear heels or platforms. This isn't for everyone of course, but wearing heels or platform shoes is an instant boost. You can grow anywhere from a couple of inches to six inches as soon as you put them on. With a pair of heels on, people will look at you or up to you instead of down to you. When you first meet a person, their first impression won't be of your height, but rather of your facial features.[[Image:Get Taller Fast Step 17.jpg|center]]
  +
#*Walking in high heels is a serious skill that takes practice. Take the time to really feel comfortable in high heels before you wear them outside.
  +
#*Walking in high heels can damage your feet. Try to wear insoles and moleskin, as well as breaking new shoes in before going out in them.
  +
#*If you don't want to wear obviously big heels, look for shoes with thick soles.
  +
#*Men can buy heel inserts to boost their height.<ref>https://ift.tt/35qPUPH>
