Will I grow (Height!) anymore?

    • Thread Starter

    Okay so between 16-17 I grew only 1 inch. Im now standing at 6'2 and possibly wanna reach 6'3/6'4/6'5. Is it still possible? My parents said they grew quite late. Thanks for any help.

    Edit: Forgot to mention I just turned 17 years old.

    they both said they grew quite late so i think u already knew the answer dw

    "Although most of growth takes place before the age of 18, many men will keep growing until they are 21 years old"

    So you might have stopped growing already, but you might well have another inch or so in you. I grew about an inch between 18 and 21 (from 6ft to 6ft1) so it's much slower than in your teenage years but not a complete stop.

    Don't actually do this but someone told this weird thing to eat loads of dates and milk for breakfast. They also told me to incorporate loads of bananas into my diet and make more time for stretches. Sigh.

    I'm 17, and only 5ft 3. If only I could continue growing.....
