    how do i grow taller? im 15 1/2, im 5'5 1/2, ive been the same height since i was in 7th grade, which is 3 or 4 years ago.. any tips?

    ~ edit, i think i need more sleep, i get 3 - 5 hours of sleep a night,because i have a bad habbit of procrastinating, and also, i work out at gym, but i like the gym but doesnt it stunt your growth? i hate being short because in 7th grade, me and my friends were all same height, im still same height, and their all tall. =[

    There's nothing you can do except drastic surgery. I would highly advise against that though.

    You keep growing until you're 21 so you've got five and a half years left.

    The kids are all so tall today. I'm 5ft 10''.

    Unfortunately hight is pre-programmed in your DNA. Hormones only stimulate it. There is no magic pill to take. The best indication is to look at your parents and grandparents. If at least one of them is short, there is a chance you'll be short too.

    BTW, don't buy that BS study that been going around that says tall people are more successful that short people. That only applies to the NBA. :p

    Depending on when you started gyming apparently it can stunt your growth, for example if you started doing heavy (ish) weights when you were quite young (which you still are) then that may have something to do with it.

    I cant remember where i heard it though, i think it was in Biology. not sure, didnt listen much.
    6.4 myself, but i wouldnt worry much man you still got years to catch up:)

    You still have 5 years of growing left... no worries. I'm 21 and I guess I am happy with my height. I don't think I've grown much in the past couple of years.

    Well, i've been the same height since I was later 14 years old, i'm 16 now and i've been 6'0", my family is rather tall, every realative I have that is male is at least 6' tall, my dad is 6'5" lol, but then again being tall isn't everything... it only has a few advantages and some disadvantages, just the way it is. Also it may depend on your body build? I mean if your rather skinny or stocky ( big shoulders and such like my family ) it's all in the DNA... I think ethnicity has to do a bit with it as well. I just reccommend getting alot of sleep and drinking alot of water I guess.

    stop complaining.
    im 5foot 0.5inches

    im not even 5'1"
    You dont see me complaining, i'd rather be short than tall. True i cant reach everything on high shelves. but i dont hit my head when entering cars. and i can crawl into tight places and smaller openings.
    Also if i fall. i dont hit as hard, and it takes less energy to get up.. not to mention it takes less energy just doing day to day activities.

    Embrase the shortiness.

    And to top it all off. shorter ninjas sneak better.

    Well you dont see any of us taller (lucky) ones making long lists as to why its better to be tall rather than short.
    It seems its the short ones jumping on the defensive first, hmm, i wonder why that is?

    *cough*complex*cough*:D
    But fair enough, i concede, shorter ninjas do (probably) sneak better:) you can have that.
