The Relationship Between Diet and Height Increase

According to Wikipedia, the average height of men in South Korea is 5 & # 39; 8.7 ", while North Korean men have an average height of only 5 & # 39; 5.2".

That's a 3.5-inch difference between people who are just separated by (mostly) porous borders!

The scientific explanation behind this huge difference in the height of South and North Korea is the difference in their eating habits and lifestyle. While rich South Koreans will enjoy the world's first lifestyle, gaining plenty of nutrients in their bodies, the poor North Koreans have had to adapt to a sub-standard diet, leading to their men being shorter than their southern counterparts.

The body needs nutrients to grow, and to stimulate the release of certain hormones specific to growth and growth (mostly HGH - Human Growth Hormone). Without a sufficient supply of protein, carbohydrates, fats (yes, although fat is important), vitamins and minerals, the body's growth is stalled.

In the first world, the use of carbohydrates and fats is not a problem. Most of our main meals are loaded with this. Most people, however, do not have enough protein, vitamins and minerals in their diet. Vitamins and minerals are mainly found in fruits and vegetables - two food groups that are largely absent from most diet regimes. If you believe that you are not getting enough fruits and vegetables in your diet, you should take multivitamin pills and minerals.

For protein, eat lots of chicken, turkey, and fish without the skin. Avoid red meat like beef since they have high cholesterol. Also, consider adding a protein shake or two to your diet. The protein in this shake is of very high quality and is easily absorbed into the body.

Proper nutrition is important to maximize your growth potential. Adolescents' tendency to taste snacks is a major source of concern as it impedes growth by not providing them with enough nutrition to grow taller. If you are young (that is, under 18), eat healthy and exercise a lot and you will realize your true growth potential.
