    the past week my appetite has increased a lot, almost to the point where i feel the need to eat every 2 hours.. i've also grown 1/2", but that might be because of some back and shoulder exercises.. i'm 24 and only 5'7 and a 1/2" now.. very healthy, and i exercise at least every other day. is it possible i'm having a really late growth spurt? :x::x:

    apetite increase is from an increased metabolism from excercising

    height gain is probably just standing up straighter, better posture from corrective excercise

    doubtful. i'm 20 and it seems like i've gotten a lot bigger/taller in the last year. and i thought that was late. i think you're pretty much done at 24

    Probably just posture, everyone though I grew taller after I started working out.
    You better hope its not some gigantism gene being switched on though :rofl:

    Doubt it.

    Mostly likely because your workouts (you mentioned you're doing a lot more back and shoulder work) is correcting your posture and giving you that extra half inch.

    nba players david robinson and dennis rodman both had growth spurts in college. I forget at what ages but they grew quite a bit.
