While your height is primarily pre-determined by genetics, that are several things that you can do to promote a positive growth spurt including eating a well-balanced diet, getting enough sleep, and exercising. A well-balanced diet is crucial to promote growth during adolescence. Follow these simple tips: For each meal, you should be eating a well balanced ratio of complex carbohydrates, clean protein, and healthy fats Start every day with breakfast After breakfast, continue eating smalls meals every 2-3 hours Drink 8 glasses of water per day Sleep is more important for teens than it is for adults. On average, adults need between 6 to 8 hours every night. Teens need between 8 to 10 hours each night. The reason? During the R.E.M. cycles you experience while sleeping, Human Growth Hormone is released in the largest amounts. Want to grow? Then sleep! As a teenager, exercise is important but the last thing you want to do is rush into a weight-training program, especially if you have no experience.

this will allow the body to adjust and prepare to handle heavier loads. Many issues begin with improper form and poor posture. Teens who master classic body-weight exercises such as the push-up, pull-up, squat, and lunge can transition into weightlifting with a strong foundation to support dumbbell and barbell based exercises.

So, if you are still growing, read on to learn about natural ways that work for and with you to help you grow taller. Method 1 : To Become Taller 1. 1.Consume a balanced diet.

o Eat plenty of lean protein. Lean protein, such as white poultry meat, fish, soy, and dairy, helps promote muscle growth and healthy bones. Simple carbohydrates such as pizza, cakes, sweets, and soda, are the stuff to stay away from. o Eat plenty of calcium. Calcium, found in leafy green vegetables such as spinach and kale, and in dairy (yogurt and milk), helps promote healthy bones.[1] o Get enough zinc. Studies, although they have been inconclusive so far, point to a possible link between zinc deficiencies and stunted growth in boys.[2] Good sources of zinc include oysters, wheat germ, pumpkin and squash seeds, lamb, peanuts, and crab.[3] o Get enough vitamin D. Vitamin D promotes bone and muscle growth in children[4], and a deficiency has been shown to stunt growth and cause weight gain in teenage girls.[5] Vitamin D can be found in fish, alfalfa, or mushrooms commonly.

2. Exercise throughout the teen years and in puberty to improve your height modestly. Do jumping exercises frequently, such as skipping, dancing and even hanging . Be active. Get out and about and work your muscles for at least 30 minutes each day. o Join a gym. Joining a gym will help give you access to a lot of great exercising and muscle-building machines. It will also keep you motivated to work out (you'll feel silly if you're not exercising in the gym). o Join a sports team. People who join sports teams can use their natural competitiveness to burn extra calories and hopefully get their bodies taller. The great thing about team Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 5

sports is that half the time, you don't even realize that you're exercising. o If nothing else, walk around. If you can't find the time to do anything else, get up and walk around. Walk to the grocery store. Walk to the library. Walk to school. 3. 3 Get adequate sleep each night. Sleeping is the time when your body grows, so having plenty of sleep is equivalent to giving your body more time for growth. Get between 9 and 11 hours of sleep per night if you're a preteen or still younger than 20. Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 6

o The human growth hormone (HGH) is produced naturally in our bodies, especially during deep or slow wave sleep.[6] Getting good, sound sleep will encourage the production of HGH, which is created in the pituitary gland. 4. 4 Understand that a majority of your height will be predetermined by genetics. Scientists reckon that 60% to 80% of your height is determined by genes.[7] Unfortunately, either you have the tall gene or you don't. That's not to say that you can't grow tall if you have parents who are on the shorter side; it just means that Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 7

having shorter parents means you're more likely to be on the short side. 5. 5 Try not to stunt your growth. There might not be a lot you can do to increase your height, but you can take several steps to make sure your natural height isn't shortened by environmental influences. Drugs and alcohol are both thought to contribute to stunted growth if they're ingested while you're young, and malnutrition can keep you from reaching your full height, as well. o Does caffeine really stunt your growth? Scientific study shows that, no, caffeine does not stunt growth.[8] Caffeine Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 8

does, however, have a higher chance of keeping you from sleeping soundly and regularly. Kids and adolescents needs about 9-10 hours of sleep, and caffeine may hurt your ability to get that much sleep. o Does smoking really stunt your growth? The effects of smoking and second-hand smoke on body mass index (BMI) are inconclusive. According to Columbia University's Internet Health Resource, "Although the studies that have been done are largely inconclusive, the available research suggests that children who smoke or who are exposed to second-hand smoke are shorter than those who do not smoke or are children of non-smokers."[9] o Do steroids really stunt your growth? Absolutely. Anabolic steroids inhibit bone growth in young children and teens, along with lowering sperm count, decreasing breast size, elevating blood pressure and putting you at higher risk of heart attack.[10] Children and teens who suffer from asthma and use inhalers that dispense small doses of the steroid budesonide are, on average, half an inch shorter than those not treated with steroids.[11] 6. Expect to be in your twenties when you stop growing. A lot of young kids look at themselves and ask, "Have I finished growing yet?" If you're under 18, the answer is probably "No!"[12] If you haven't stopped puberty yet, then you haven't stopped growing.[13] Try to be thankful that you have a little time to grow taller instead of worrying about how tall you will be.
