    im 18 years old and im 5'7
    i havent grown at all for the past 2 years
    my friends tell me that i messed up 3 years ago, when i lost some weight because i was overweight, and apparently that caused me to stop growing. is there any truth to that ?
    plus for around 3 years now, i have been sleeping on a sofa most of the time, does this affect anything?
    all i want to know is that is there a chance i grow a couple for inches ? if so, what can i do to maximise the chances of that happening, i,e eating healthy (which i dont most of the time), drinking milk, etc etc.
    currently, i intend on joining gym and losing some weight, as i have gained some pounds, and also intend to build some muscle. but i heard that doing weights is bad at this age, as it prevents growth?

    i know i sound lost and all, but i just need some good clarifiication wheter or not i can still grow, and how i can maximise my chances to

    thanks everyone

    Sorry to say this but at 18 it's highly unlikely that you're going to grow.

    You could try HGH but there's no guarantee it would do anything for your height.

    5'7" isn't even that bad. Don't worry yourself about it. Just get massive and no one will care.

    don't know if people stop growing at 18 or 21 but what ever it is, after 18 you will not grow much.

    You may grow an inch or two over the next three years..

    You're fine to go to the gym at the age of 18..
