5ways how changing your diet Will help you grow taller

While taking good care of your body may help you grow taller, your height is mostly determined by your genetics. Once your growth plates are fused together, you will stop growing taller, which usually happens between the ages of 14 and 20.If you are still growing, good nutrition may help you get taller.

1. Eat a healthy nutritious diet.

Good nutrition is essential for reaching your height potential, which is the highest your body can grow. Build your meals around fresh vegetables, fruits, and lean proteins. Fill half your plate with veggies, 1/4 of your plate with lean protein, and 1/4 of your plate with complex carbs. Snack on fruits, veggies, and low-fat dairy.

Leanproteins include chicken, turkey, fish, beans, nuts and low-fat dairy.

Complexcarbs include whole grains and starchy veggies, like potatoes.


2. Incorporate more protein into your diet. 

Protein helps your body build healthy body mass, like muscles. This can help you be your tallest. Eat protein at every meal and include it in your snacks.

3. Eat an egg every day if you are not allergic to them. 

Young children who eat a whole egg daily may grow taller than kids who don't. Eggs contain protein and vitamins that support healthy growth, and they're also a cheap and easy food to add to your diet. Eat an egg to 1 meal every day to potentially help you get taller.

Ask your doctor if it's safe for you to eat an egg every day.

4. Consume a serving of dairy each day to support your growth. 

Dairy contains protein, calcium, and vitamins to nourish your body. While milk is a great choice, yogurt and cheese are also great sources of dairy. Incorporate 1 serving of your favorite dairy product into your daily diet.

5. Take calcium and vitamin supplements if your doctor says it's okay. 



Supplements may help you grow taller by meeting your nutritional needs. Calcium and vitamins A and D are especially important because they support strong bones. Talk to your doctor to find out if supplements are right for you.

For instance, you might take a daily multivitamin and calcium supplement.

Keep in mind that vitamins won't make you grow taller than your genetics allow.
