    nope its genetic, but if you have a crooked back hanging from a bar would help straighten it, which could add up to 2" in height.

    you cant be serious.... your 19 and you still think theres a magic food that helps you grow? or stretching? get used 2 your shortness and befriend it cuz besides leg lengthening/bone breaking surgery, you will never be much taller than you are now.

    I'm 5'6" and getting no taller.

    You MIGHT have been able to take action earlier, but you're 19. Sorry bud, you're done growing.

    If your parents are both taller than you, insurance can pay for growth hormone if your body has an inefficiency, but your past growing stage. Also, while you're growing, eating healthy and staying fit will only give you about 1/4- 1/2" more height.

    No luck :sadwavey:

    if stretching helps, would that mean doing stretches before excersing would help a little?

  19. I wish I was little bit taller,
    I wish I was a baller
    I wish I had a girl who looked good
    I would call her
    I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat
    and a '64 Impala

    I wish I was like six-foot-nine
    So I could get with Leoshi
    Cause she don't know me but yo she's really fine
    You know I see her all the time
    Everywhere I go, and even in my dreams
    I can scheme of ways to make her mine
    Cause I know she's livin phat
    Her boyfriend's tall and he plays ball
    So how am I gonna compete with that
    'Cause when it comes to playing basketball
    I'm always last to be picked
    And in some cases never picked at all
    So I just lean upon the wall
    Or sit up in the bleachers with the rest of the girls
    Who came to watch their men ball
    Dag y'all! I never understood
    Why the jocks get the fly girls
    And me I get the hood rats
    I tell 'em scat, skittle, skibobble
    Got hit with a bottle
    And put in the hospital, for talkin' that mess
    I confess it's a shame when you livin' in a city
    That's the size of a box and nobody knows yo' name
    Glad I came to my senses
    Like quick-quick got sick-sick to my stomach
    Overcome with my thoughts of me and her together
    Right?
    So when I asked her out she said I wasn't her type
    (rpt 1, 1)

    I wish I had a brand-new car
    So far, I got this hatchback
    And everywhere I go, yo I gets laughed at
    And when I'm in my car I'm laid back
    I got an 8-track and a spare tire in the backseat
    But that's flat
    And do you really wanna know what's really wack, What
    See I can't even get a date
    So, what do you think of that?
    I heard that prom night is the bomb night
    With a hood rat you can hold tight
    But really tho' on figuero
    When I'm in my car I can't even get a hello
    Well so many people wanna cruise Crenshaw on Sunday
    Well then I'm gonna have to get in my car and go
    You know I take the 110 to the 105
    Get off on Crenshaw tell my homies look alive
    Cause it's hard to survive
    Livin' in a concrete jungle and
    These girls just keep passin' me by
    She looks fly, she looks fly
    Makes me say my, my, my
    (rpt 1, 1)

    I wish I was a little bit taller...
    I wish I was a baller...
    I wish I was a little bit taller y'all
    I wish I was a baller (3)

    Hey, I wish I had my way
    'Cause everyday would be a Friday
    You could even speed on the highway
    I would play ghetto games
    Name my kids ghetto names
    Little Mookie, big Al, Lorraine
    Yo you know that's on the real
    So if you're down on your luck
    Then you should know just how I feel
    Cause if you don't want me around
    See I go simple, I go easy, I go greyhound
    Hey, you, what's that sound?
    Everybody look what's going down
    Ahhhh, yes, ain't that fresh?
    Everybody wants to get down like that
    (rpt 1, 1)

    I wish, I wish, I wish...

    Best you can hope for is follow a typical bodybuilder's bulking diet

    It makes sense, a bodybuilders aim is too increase cell devolpment to the maximum amounts and the same is with people who want to grow taller :dunno:

    That and injecting yourself with HGH
