Many people probably suspect that the diet has something to do with how tall you grow. Well if you’re one of those people then you would be correct. There are several changes you can make to your diet that will help you gain those extra inches that you want. And keep you healthy too.
The first thing you should know about growth is that there are some things that will increase your growth hormone production and other things that will stunt your growth. I’ll start with the good stuff first. What can you eat that will help you get that height increase you want?
Proteins are the key.
Proteins are filled with amino acids which are essential for the production of the Growth Hormone. But here’s the tricky part… how do you get protein without getting the bad stuff too? Well I’m here to give you a short list of things that are great for growth. There are many foods you can eat including; but not limited to; Egg, Fish, Skimmed milk, peas, beans, lentils and soybeans. These are just some of the things you can eat to help stimulate your growth hormones.
Carbohydrates and Saturated Fats – The bad foods.
Carbohydrates and saturated fats are believed to stunt growth in humans. So while you might think that a big juicy red steak is filled with protein remember that it comes with a lot of saturated fats too. I’m not saying don’t eat meat as red meat is key to brain development, but just cut away the fat and drain the excess off before you eat it.
Some other things to watch out for are: Rice, corn, grains, bread and potatoes are high in carbohydrates. And in the Fats corner we have: Hydrogenated vegetable oil, butter, bacon, sausages, processed meats, cream, whole milk products, ice cream and sour cream. Again this is not a complete list of things to avoid but it should give you some idea of what to keep an eye on.
Eat healthy and your body will reward you!
