So you’ve got a problem with your height – maybe because you can’t reach the shelves in the kitchen or perhaps because it means you can’t be Mr. or Ms. Universe anymore. Well, increasing height is actually not hopeless even for people way beyond their growth spurt years.
Studies have shown that there is a slight possibility of continued growth in adults. And although this has to be backed up by further research, it has always been clear that a person’s height can be manipulated by his or her environment and habits.
Tips to Get Taller
1. Healthy Lifestyle
Poor nutrition is a big antagonist in the whole height-increase story. When you don’t eat right, your body lacks the nutrition that it needs to produce growth-enhancing substances such as HGH or Human Growth Hormones. It throws the systems in your body off-balance and gets in the way of regenerating your cells, speeding up your metabolism and yes, encouraging growth in your bones.

It throws the systems in your body off-balance and gets in the way of regenerating your cells, speeding up your metabolism and yes, encouraging growth in your bones. To really help your system to appropriately distribute and process HGH, it needs certain nutrients like Calcium and Protein, which can be found in Meat and Dairy. It also needs Vitamin D, to help take in Calcium in your bones.
On top of that, Yoga, Pilates and other stretching exercises are encouraged because they help decompress your
spine and adds a few more inches to your frame.
2. Dress Right
On a more practical note, appearing to be tall can be done in neat little tricks:
- Wear dark clothes and vertical stripes – these will give the illusion of elongation, making you look taller.
- Wear heels – for women, the easiest pick in the closet is a pair of high heels if you want to look taller. Choose slimmer styles like stilettos because chunky shoes can actually make you look shorter. On the other hand, male celebrities like Ryan Seacrest wear platform shoes or elevated shoes to add a few inches to their height.
- Avoid low rise jeans – Choose pants that stay as close to your waistline as possible as this will make your legs look longer.
- Bring attention to the upper half of your body – Keep the attention away from your legs and up to your shoulders. Wear clothes that have interesting collars or perhaps something with a bow tie.
