Can I Grow Taller At 22? by goodiz(m): 6:59pm On Mar 25, 2010
I'll be 22 next month and I'm shorter than most guys and girls of my age & it gives me a little worry. This makes people talk and look at me as they would a younger person. I also feel awkard walking with tall people. The only thing that gives me confidence is that I'm handsome & intelligent (people tell me so). But I want to know if I can grow taller at 22. If diets will help, what should I eat? Thanks all, insults are also welcome.

How short are u ?
What are your parents heights ?
Did you or do you body build ?
The ends of your bones are suppossed to fuse before your 25th birthday but not necessarily at 22.
Try taking up PILATES exercises, they make your back and limbs appear longer making you look and feel taller.
You could also try to see if you still have some latent growth left in you - thats if your bones havent completely fused.
Stimulate the pituartary gland meridian in your foot for two weeks and stop. If you experience any growth over the next 1 month then you know you can still grow before its all over.
Someone even told me they sell shoe pads that do this now.
If you need further explanations which I cant go into here , c

I mentioned bodybuilding because its a comon mistake for short teens to take up this activity, thinking it will make them look bigger when in actual fact it fuses the ends of long bones and restricts vertical growth prematurely.

I think above all, its your personality that counts. from what you wrote above you appear to have a good one. Also you can work on your carriage and comportment if youre worried about appearing to young. People will read into your body language and know youre no small boy.
Youre only 22 , just wait until start to grow facial hair and everybody's calling you 'sa, sa'.
Youll soon get tired.
Abt checking your capacity for extra grwth, you can still call if you wish
Cheers

You stopped growth at 18yrs, your body long bone ends fused at that stage.

Mr. Goodiz, I think you are done growing, at least vertically.
Re: Can I Grow Taller At 22? by Lex87: 8:36pm On Apr 23, 2010
Biology, genetics and nature have already plotted your course, once you hit 20 or maybe 21, that's it - no more vertical growth. I was once quite obsessed with the whole thing, but once I realized there was nothing, no magic pill, no new fangled exercise, I accepted myself. In my quest of how to grow taller I even wore lifts for a while (click to see them)! I guess if it is still an issue once you are in your 20's you can always go with something like these. Accept yourself as you are, height be damned!!!  smiley Besides, once you're done growing vertically, it's the "horizontal growth" (ie: a beer belly and love handles) you have to be mindful of  grin

Re: Can I Grow Taller At 22? by ObamaUS: 7:43am On Apr 25, 2010
I'm not sure all those theories of 'u stop growing at 18 or 22' applies to everyone,

I was 5ft 11 when i was 23.
i realised that by the time i was 26,i had grown to 6ft 1 and now that i'm even 31,i discovered that i'm almost 6ft 2,

Pls let us in on your secret. (lol!)
Im sure if the OP doesnt engage in any testosterone boosting excercises and relaxes a little he could still grow 2-3 inches.

I agree with you. When i was 21, i was almost 6ft but not up 6. By the time i got to 25-26yrs, i was 6ft2 and i've never added anything since then.
Its different for girls. Once they're up to 18-21, its bye-bye to any increase in height.

If your parents are tall, you would have a good chance of gowing taller. Height is all about genes. But that does not mean that you would take for granted the things you need to reach your adult height.

There are tons of websites dedicated to increasing height.  A good resource for tips and tricks in growing taller would be HeightForum. There are a lot of websites about growing taller but I would start any research in HeightForum. The site has an article How Do You Grow Taller? that gives you the ins and outs on how to maximize your growing potential

Again, genes is the number on factor but eat right, exercise and get enough sleep would get you taller.

There is nothing you can do about your height because it is natural and you're genes dictate your height what you have to do is to accept your self because not all of us can be same and there people who would like to be like you. Thank God you're handsome and Intelligent thank God for that.

I dont like when people says there is "nothing you can do" because this is a world of possibilities okay.
For those who interested to grow their bones should mail me on jonathanosward@yahoo.com
