Does your appetite affect your height most?
« on: January 01, 2021, 01:38:04 PM »

  I had been subjected to bad appetite since childhood and until today I can't also eat as much as my peers.
  I've been wondering why they can finish a whole bowl of food since my childhood.
  I can hardly finish a half amount of others' meals every time.Thus I'm being considered as having a very bad appetite for food.
  What's worse,I can't seemingly digest meats Cuz everytime I eat up a piece of pork I'll quickily need excretion in my toilet.
  I can tell you I really got a bad appetite due to all above.Finishing meals of equal amounts to my peers' has always been difficult for me.
  I think that's why I'm so short right now.
  In fact I told my problem to my parents and required diagnosis in hospital but they thought I was joking.

Only in extreme cases.  If your body has height genes, it will use the calories it gets to grow, even if you don't get many.  My best friend wasn't a big eater and he grew to be 6'2.

I had a huge appetite for my size as a kid and it always annoyed me when people assumed I could eat less just because of how abnormally short I was.

No don't worry you didn't stun any growth. If you ate more you probably only would have become fatter. height is genetics that's the sad reality

Yes, malnutrition can limit growth. This is a problem for people with eating disorders. The body can't build anything with materials it doesn't have.

In third world countries were a child has no option to eat enough, yea. If you were healthy in the first few years then it won't change a thing. There are many cases of anorexia were the person started with starving with 11 or so and still grows up to be tall (height = / = size or weight). One case I know of is a 6'3 guy who started with starving at age 13. The resorption of nutrients (inheridet metabolism) is far more important. As well as HGH.
Also if you really eat less the body takes its nutrients via other ways (breaks down its teeth for calcium etc.). But yet again, metabolism is doing it's thing without you thinking about it.

"You stunt your growth" is a foul excuse for people that just inheridet short genes honestly, the only real growth stunts are maybe accidents near growth plates, chemotherapy, maybe drug abuse (some drugs like retaline), or thyroid/kidney (or other organs) dysfunction. All things that the average person doesn't have to deal with.
