    Not sure I fully understand what you're asking. Do you mean bone length, or bone density?

    I'm kind of guessing this could be a young person, in which case they may not have finished growing yet.

    I don't think you can eat to grow your bones, the only way your bones can grow is when you just grow in general with age and what-not. I could be wrong though.

    Actually I'm 20 years old, what i'm trying to ask is look in the picture below, my friends in the same age as me got bigger bones than me in this area same on other parts of the body, I need to note that i don't mean the muscle in the arm i mean the Bone itself. so i'm asking is there a way to get bigger bones in this area and other areas? food? i heard milk is good? or it's just can't happen?


    BTW excuse my english it's not that good and the nooby question.

    I don't think there's much you can do now since I think you're done growing, but calcium and vitamin d are recommended for overall bone health. If you want to make it look like your forearm bone is bigger you could incorporate forearm exercises into your workouts to make the muscles bigger over time, which would make them look bigger.

    Your bone density is genetics. If you have really skinny arms or are small boned your probably also an ectomorph, while your friends are either more of mesomorphs or endomorphs. You can read more about that stuff here I think you'll find it interesting:

    Like Cardioman said you should probably start training your forearm to see some results.

    I realise some may not have heard this, but the Olympiads of old (Sparta etc) had thicker bone formations in the limbs they made most use of, so the javelin throwers using their right arm were found to have larger/thicker bones in the right arm in comparison to their left arm; the moral of the story, lift weights and bone density/thickness should occur.

    Watched a program on TV about the early Olympiads, gladiators etc.

    As previously stated you may not be done growing, so I wouldn't sweat it, however if the difference is that noticeable you may want to talk to a physician about your growth plates and if they have closed yet. They usually close between the ages of 18 and 22. If they haven't closed yet and you are unhappy with your size, your doctor may have some recommendations. There are things you can do that require daily injections 2-3 times a day, that will help your bones grow, but it is very tedius and expensive, and I'm not sure what the side effects are, however I know people who have done this and grown at a rate of 3/4 inch to an inch in a half in a year. I forget what the actual drug or injection is called but it does work. Again I would consult your doctor about it if this is a real concern.
