    Unhappy Wanna grow taller!!

    Is there a way in which I can get taller? Something to eat? An exercise to perform? I'll be 16 in May and I'm only 5 feet. And I think my height makes me look proportionally inaccurate. I look fat and chubby.
    Thanks
    -Jan

    How many miles is 2.4 Km?

    How does weight lifting help?

    Thanks

    He's suggesting that you diet and exercise and lose weight. And that being thinner will make you look taller. It won't actually make you taller, it would just give you the illusion of being taller.

    You can always wear higher heeled shoes too.

    I doubt very much that at your age that you will grow any taller than you are now. It's a genetic thing. You must have some cousins, aunts, uncles, siblings that are about the same height or close to it.

    Sorry
