    its hard to predict how tall you will be without knowing you and such. it depends on the genetics of your family.

    all i can say is you still have a lot of growing to do. you might grow another few inches, as the average guy grows until he is around 21 or so.

    us guys do grow til we are older but it is very hard to say. cos u r 16 you could still grow a bit more.

    Mainly it is down to your genetics and your hereditary.

    if most of your family are 6ft there are cahnces hat you will be the same. you shouldn´t worry though cos that is an okay height and you will grow.

    there are always alternative methods like growth pills or testosterone shots but that is only for extreme cases like really short people

    could lay in the back of the truck and tie your arms to the front and have your legs still there in the back and just have the guy go 60 or 90 mph something like that

    people in the navy and stuff used to do that to get a couple more inches so they can join some stuff.

    if you get it

    whey protein, milk, yoghurt, cheese, and boiled chicken. Your bones need phosphorus, calcium, and magnesium while your muscles need water, protein and carbohydrates to grow. Since you are growing taller, both your muscles and bones are getting bigger and longer. Don't waste your money or your health on drugs, alcohol or cigarettes.

    Tips for healthy nutrition

    1. Eat at regular hours.

    2. Don't skip any meal.

    3. Don't forget to eat breakfast. Always start the day with a well-rounded meal.

    4. Take the time to taste and to chew your food well.

    5. Vary your menu.

    6. Avoid pastries, sweets, crisps, soda drinks - anything that has little or no nutritious value.

    7. Beware of salt consumption. It can cause hypertension.

    8. Eat a lot of raw vegetables and fresh juice. Choose whole wheat bread.

    9. Drink six (6) to eight (8) glasses of water or vegetable juice or sugar-free juice per day.

    10.You should also drink milk.

    11.Eat good quality food supplements every day.

    12.After each meal you should rest. Don't start to work or exercise right after.

    Have the hair style that makes you appear taller. In order to appear taller, a hair style should be thin at the sides and higher up top, which can make you appear as much as an inch taller Avoid clothes with horizontal lines. Belts are horizontal so make sure you conceal it in your clothes.

    Avoid clothes with a tartan or checked pattern. Avoid cuffs that makes your legs appear shorter.

    • Wear clothes with vertical lines or striping. Vertical lines or stripping make a person appear thinner,

    and thinness in turn gives impression of more height.

    Wear shoes that will make you appear taller. If you are a female, this should be easy since you can find a lot of female shoes with 2 or 3 inches’ heels. For males, wear shoes with thick soles to add the illusion of height.

    To increase your height, it is important that your blood is oxygenated as blood provides nourishment to your bones. Regular breathing will also purify your blood. There are three phases to breathing:

    1. Inhaling - take in air into your body through the nose

    2. Retaining - hold your breath inside your body

    3. Exhaling - blow out air from your body through the mouth

    It is during deep sleep that growth hormone does its job of thickening and lengthening your bones. So appropriate sleeping time (not the longer, the better) and correct sleeping posture is very important for your body to grow. Sleep is defined as a natural periodic state of rest for the mind and body, in which the eyes usually close and consciousness is completely or partially lost, so that there is a decrease in bodily movement and responsiveness to external stimuli.

    During deep sleep, growth hormone produced by your pituitary gland is released into your blood stream and travel through your body and causes the thickening and lengthening of your bones. Therefore, you should achieve "deep level" sleep on a daily basis in order to coordinate your affords of exercises and proper diet. The following are some helpful tips on how to easily achieve deep level sleep.

    Sleep in a comfortable and firm mattress.

    Sleep in a room that is dark, quiet and fresh smelling.

    Sleep with clean, soft, and comfortable clothes.

    Keep your hands and feet warm. Scientific studies have shown that warm hands and feet will help induce REM (rapid eye movement) deep sleep. Cold hands and feet will keep you from deep sleep.

    Drink a big glass of water before going to bed and when you wake up; this will help clean out your system.

    Practice total relaxation and deep breathing for a few minutes before you go to bed.

    Relax from head to toe. Close your eyes and relax every part of your body.

    Maintain a habit of sleeping at the same time everyday, including weekends.

    Sleep on your back with a flat pillow under your knees. This will align your spine properly and prevent any back aches caused by sleeping in a bent position.

    Undoubtedly, the quality, quantity, and type of food we eat affect our height, growth, and health. We cannot emphasize enough how important your food intake is in determining how much growth you can possibly obtain. The types of food you eat will either improve or decrease your growth potential.

    After careful consideration and research, the daily content of protein, carbohydrates, fats and water can be achieved if the following items were taken regularly.

    Carrots Fish Liver

    Egg Yolk Beef Red Meat

    Milk Cheese Apples

    Green Vegetables Potatoes Nuts

    Yellow Vegetables Almonds Bananas

    Peanuts Chicken Beans

    Peas Salt 6-8 glasses of water per day

    If you eat a lot of peanut butter, your height will not necessarily stop. Neither does masturbation stop height.

    What might stop you from growing is smoking, drugs, alcohol, lack of sleep, stress, digestive problems, or lack of exercise.
