How To Gain Height – Three Part Height Increase Program








Quote from co-creator who was unhappy about his height:


“As like many other short people end up doing, at the time I bought many supplements and programs from the internet but unfortunately none of them worked. I wasted thousands of dollars for nothing… until I found the website of a man called Darwin Smith; he had a system for growing taller – or so he claimed.

I got started straight away and in a few months I was 2 inches taller. It was great! As if I won the Lottery! (most people do not realize that if you give 2 inches to a short person it’s the equivalent of giving him 2 million dollars!)”


After a while he decided to ensure this information was available to anyone wanting to learn how to gain height.


“I knew that the height increase industry was full of scams, full of scepticism. Thus, if I was going to do anything I needed the help of someone that had already a working system in hand to increase height, and Darwin Smith had it, I was the living proof that his system works!

I found his contact details, called him and asked about the program that he used to have on his website. “Used to have” because his program was discontinued. He never charged for his program and couldn’t manage with the workload. Long Story Short, I convinced him to Re-Make his program – and Grow Taller 4 Idiots was born!

Since then, Grow Taller 4 Idiots have been constantly updated almost on a monthly basis, with the result of being the most popular Height Increase Program of its kind – in the World.”

Sleeping Positions To Get Taller

Sleeping Positions To Get Taller

Throughout the day your spine is continually compressed due to what it is carrying, so at night when you are sleeping you have a great opportunity to alleviate this compression, allowing your spine to lengthen, and so for you to become taller than when you went to bed.

To maximize this height gaining affect, your sleeping position is important.


Two Sleeping Positions To Get Taller

There are two sleeping positions that are easy to adopt.

Side Lying

If you like sleeping on your side, try sleeping in this position:

  • Lay comfortable on your side,
  • Flex your hips about 30 degrees (i.e. bend your legs forward at your hip joint 30 degrees)
  • Flex your knees 30 degrees backwards so your lower legs are in front of your upper body, but pointing in the same direction,
  • Use a correctly sized pillow so your neck is straight, not angled to the side,
  • Put a pillow between your knees to keep them hip distance apart.

Back Lying

If you are a back sleeper, try this position:

  • Lay on your back,
  • Ensure you have a correctly sizes pillow to support your head. It should feel comfortable and not push your head forward or back (see,
  • Put a pillow under your knees you angle them up slightly.


Worse Sleeping Position

Don’t sleep on your stomach, as you have to kink your neck to one side


Am I Growing Taller?

So how do you know if this is working? If you are like me, you will want feedback over time to prove this is working which will also motivate you to keep doing this.

Simply measure your height on a regular basis over time and compare the results (see How Do I Measure My Height Accurately).


For More Details, watch the following video:

 How Do I Measure My Height Accurately


If you are trying many strategies in your quest on how to get taller, you will likely want feedback on a regular basis to see if your efforts are resulting in you actually becoming taller.

To achieve this, you need to be able to accurately measure your height to compare your height over time.

How To Measure My Own Height

Tools you need are:
– A small box
– A mirror
– A pencil
– A tape measure



1) Take off your shoes and socks
2) Find a flat surface against a solid wall
3) Stand with your back to the wall with your feet together, and your heels touching the wall
4) Make your body as straight as possible. Your bottom, shoulders, head should be touching the wall
5) Put the box on your head and push it against the wall. A box is used to ensure the bottom of the box is 90 degrees to the wall
6) Use your mirror to ensure the box is horizontal, not leaning to the side
7) Raw a line against the wall where the bottom of the box is
8) Measure the distance of the line from the floor, i.e. your height.

(see for more details).


When To Measure

Height change is a very slow process once you have become an adult, hence measuring your height about once a month is sufficient for comparison purposes.

Ensure you do this at the same time of day, or in your daily routine, e.g. when you first wake up, as your height reduces throughout the day as your spine compresses.

Also, make sure you have not changed any other factor before measuring. E.g. if you have drunk a lot of alcohol the night before your measurement, you will be dehydrated the next day, hence your spinal discs will not be fully hydrated and you height will suffer accordingly.

Three Child Height Predictor Methods


Three Height Predictor MethodsIf you are searching for how to grow taller, particularly if you are still a child or adolescent, or a concerned parent, you may also be wondering if there is an accurate child height predictor method which may alleviate some of your fears.

I have written this article from the point of view of a parent.

If you do have any concerns about your child’s natural growth, consult a paediatrician.


Three Child Height Predictor Methods 

I have identified three methods to predict your child’s final adult height.


Method 1: Genetic Based Height Predictor

Height is mainly genetic (see What Can I Influence To Grow Taller), hence one method to predict your child’s height is based on genetics, i.e. the height of his or her parents.

The following website contains one of the many examples of this height calculator.


Method 2: Twice Their Height At Two Method

Based on the Fels Longitudinal Study, simply doubling your child’s height when they turn Two Years Old will be a good indicator of their final adult height.


Method 3: Height Calculator Based On Current Height and Statistics

Another method is to use your child’s current height and age, together with your child’s Parents heights. This predictor of your child’s future adult height utilises statistical data collected from the CDC and other scientific institutions.

Children's Height Calculator

Height Prediction Calculator by TJL Enterprises.


No child height predictor will be 100 % accurate, but these three methods will give you an idea of your child’s final adult height.

One factor on how accurate a height predictor is, is that they are growing in accordance with their full height potential.

To ensure they grow taller at their full potential, it is important that you are aware of all factors which affect this, e.g. diet, to ensure there is nothing detrimental to their natural growth process.

Please leave comments on your experience of using a height predictor, or if you have any other kids height predictor methods which you have found accurate.

My Top 7 Grow Taller Foods

how to grow taller using diet


One of the most important influences to grow taller is your diet. This is particularly important during childhood, hence I have written this with your child to grow taller being the focus.

Diet is massively important for your children’s health and normal growth functions. So with a good diet, your children will grow taller as dictated by their genetics and achieve their full height potential. A poor diet however will hinder your children’s health and subsequent normal growth processes, hence although they will still continually grow taller, their diet will  prevent them from achieving their full height potential.

If you do have any doubts on what you should be feeding your child, please seek professional medical advice, they do only have one childhood to grow taller in!


What Food Categories Are Needed To Grow Taller

Carbohydrates and Calories

Children need calories to grow taller, especially during puberty when they are going through their growth spurt. Plenty of energy is also important to ensure children and doing enough exercise, which helps to stimulate growth (see



Calcium plays a significant role in helping kids grow taller. Calcium is needed for bone and teeth formation and is especially important during the pubescent growth spurt. How long your long bones are is the main contributor to height, hence anything that contributes to their growth is essential to grow taller.



All cells and tissues contain protein, therefore protein is essential for growth and repair and the maintenance of good health.

Proteins play an important role in bone development, thereby influencing peak bone mass.

Low protein intake impairs both the production and action of IGF-I (Insulin-like growth factor-I). IGF-I is an essential factor for bone longitudinal growth (see


Vitamin A

Vitamin A is necessary for the growth and development of bones and soft tissue,

Good fruits and vegetables high in vitamin A include:

–          Carrots (my kids actually love raw carrots with a Humos dip),

–          Broccoli,

–          Spinach (sounds disgusting, but if your kids don’t like spinach, get them to try it with tomato ketchup),

–          Apricots.


Vitamin D

Vitamin D promotes bone and muscle growth. As well as through food, spending time in the sun is a great source of vitamin D. Low vitamin D levels have been linked to poor height gain.



Zinc is an essential mineral required by the body for keeping a healthy immune system, building proteins, triggering enzymes, and creating DNA, amongst other things. A deficiency in zinc can lead to stunted growth.

Foods high in Zinc include:

–          Beef, lamb, pork and chicken

–          Spinach

–          Beans (cooked Mung beans, baked beans, Chickpeas, Kidney Beans)

–          Cooked white mushrooms

See ( for more food ideas and specifics on Zinc content.



Iron is essential for your child’s health. Lack of iron can lead to anaemia, which can hold back your child’s physical and mental development (see for more details).


My Top 7 Grow Taller Foods

So knowing the main food categories to grow taller is all well and good, but what do you actually need to eat? 


Whole Milk

No surprises here. Whole milk, and it’s full fat derivatives (yogurt, ice cream, cheese) is a great source of calcium. vitamin D, and protein,

Try to give your child about three servings of milk a day.

I sometimes struggle to get my children to drink milk, so three things I do are:

–          Put way too much on their cereal, and their bowl is always usually empty once they’ve finished,

–          Add drinking chocolate. My personal opinion is the milk intake benefit out ways the sugar intake. Chocolate also is a source of Zinc. And as it’s a treat, I get parent brownie points,

–          Cheese fingers as a snack, with a hummus dip.

Be careful about your child drinking too much milk though as it is low in the iron necessary for infant growth and development and it can replace the consumption of iron-rich foods, leading to anaemia.



Fish is extremely high in protein, and relatively low in fat. It is also a great source of Vitamin D.

Regarding oily fish (such as mackerel, salmon and sardines), boys can have up to four portions a week, but it’s best not to give girls more than two portions a week. This is because oily fish can contain low levels of pollutants that can build up in the body.



Great for Zinc and Protein, and Iron, as well as many other vitamins and nutrients.

And there is such a variety of ways to cook them, and I find them easy to feed to my children.

For more information see



As a general rule, vegetables are always good.

My particular favourites due to their levels of vitamin A and zinc, and because my children like them, are:

–          Spinach,

–          Peas,

–          Asparagus

–          Broccoli,

–          Carrots


Starches and Grains

Grains and starches provide a large portion of calories for growing kids , and provide energy, fibre, B vitamins, magnesium, iron and selenium

Good sources are:

–          Breakfast cereals,

–          Potatoes,

–          Whole wheat bread. My kids are not keen on this, but they do like the half and half (50% brown, 50% white),

–          Rice,

–          Couscous,

–          pasta


With whole grain foods (whole grain pasta, wholemeal bread, and brown rice), this needs to be eaten in moderation, and you do not want your child too full before they take on the calories they need from other food sources.



Great source for Protein, Iron, Zinc, and Vitamins A, B and D, amongst other nutrients and vitamins.

With red meat, be sensible and ensure this is used as part of a balanced diet. See for more advice on specific recommended amounts.



Every living thing on our planet needs water to survive. Water makes up over 50% of a person’s body weight, and is essential for the normal daily functioning, and hence the normal processes to grow taller.

There is no set amount of water your children should be drinking. Use your common sense, make it readily available, and watch for signs of de-hydration, the easiest being smelly or dark wee.


Changing Diet To Grow Taller Need Not Be A Chore

But don’t make food planning and diet enforcing a massive chore otherwise it will be like any other diet, difficult to keep up over the long term. Gradually change things, and make them habits (see



One of the most important factors for your child growing taller is their diet. A healthy balanced diet is essential to them growing taller and achieving their full height potential. Be aware of the important nutrients and food types, but then be aware of the foods that you can use in your arsenal of meals to feed your family. Don’t make it a chore, food should be fun and enjoyable, not just a means to grow taller.
