"Grow Taller 4 Idiots" by Darwin Smith REVIEW - Does it actually work?

You're short--but you want to change that. Most health experts seem to agree there's little you can do to change that, however, aside from eating a healthy diet and praying that genetics plays in your favor.

Time to give up?

Not necessarily so, according to Darwin Smith, a former "manlet" who increased his height by several inches.

And this is all thanks to a chance encounter he had with a man who showed him how to naturally grow taller. He explains how he made himself grow taller in his book Grow Taller 4 Idiots.

What is Grow Taller 4 Idiots?
Grow Taller 4 Idiots is an eBook authored by Smith, who says he successfully grew several inches after a chance encounter with a man who also did the same.

The man, a Vietnam war veteran, said that used a special concoction--as explained in the eBook--to help him grow several inches and join an elite fighters group during the war. He gave Smith his mystery concoction, and soon Smith noticed he was growing too--easily and effortlessly.

Once he realized this, he knew he had to share this secret with the world. And so, after years of research, Smith created Grow Taller 4 Idiots. Now one of the most popular eBooks on the Internet, this book details everything you need to do to get taller--from doingthe correct exercisesto eating right.

The Special Height-Enhancing Concoction
So what was so special about his height-enhancing concoction? The special concoction he sipped wasn't something illegal--such as a beverage spike with drugs or chemicals. Instead, it was a natural beverage containing three simple ingredients, which he says boosts HGH production. HGH, of course, stands for human growth hormone.

The ingredients in this concoction consist of tomatoes, broad beans, and cabbage. That's it--nothing more, nothing less.

To maximize your growth potential, Smith recommends sipping it twice daily, preferably after exercise. He also recommends following a strict diet plan containing a balance of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates, which he said is crucial for becoming taller.

Other tips consist of getting plenty of sleep, learning how to have correct posture, and doing stretches to enhance your height.

Issues With Grow Taller 4 Idiots
Throughout the entire book, Smith emphasizes that his recommends are based in scientific fact, but that's not necessarily true. For instance, he says his growth-enhancing beverage increases HGH production, when in fact there's no evidence to support this. The FDA warns that there are no dietary supplements or products that can enhance HGH production; only certain drugs have been proven to enhance it. Furthermore, there's little proof that certain foods can enhance your height.

But don't discount this eBook just yet. While it may not be a scientifically sound book, it's telling the truth when it says that nutrition is vitally important for maximizing your growth. Poor nutrition can stunt growth, usually in severe instances, so if you want to grow, it's important to eat well--by eating foods rich in a multitude of nutrients.

What Consumers are Saying
Grow Taller 4 Idiots is an immensely popular book among consumers--but consumers aren't actually a fan of this eBook. Here's what some of them had to say:

"I purchased it last year from the site. I read all the 3 books nearly 200 pages. I prepared a food schedule according to the book. I did every exercises [sic] everyday shown in the book. After 2 months I realized that nothing happened."

"Grow taller 4 idiots was a big scam! I bought it and it second next to [expletive]."

If the consumer feedback is any indication of its success, then things don't look good for Grow Taller 4 Idiots.

Conclusion? While nutrition is important, no single beverage or food will make you tall--even if a book says otherwise.
