Gravitational Waves

A century ago in the year 1915, Albert Einstein proposed ‘general theory of relativity’. He proposed that the fabric of space-time might be able to vibrate due to some astrophysical process. Such highly energetic process can create ripples on the space-time fabric. Those ripples are now known as ‘Gravitational Waves’.  The year 2015 has confirmed Einstein’s theory. ‘Gravitational Waves’ were actually observed by the scientists, hundred years later than the initial Einstein’s theory. It shows the hard work of the scientists. Great work!

How the Gravitational Waves turned up?
The Gravitational Waves were turned up 1.3 billion years ago by two massive black holes whirling around each other, then spiraled inward & finally merged into each other creating a huge black hole. That collision of two massive black holes released energy of many suns in a time as less as fraction of a second. The energy released 1.3 billion years ago is still spreading outward in the form of Gravitational Waves causing distortion on the fabric of space-time. These waves were most intense at their focal point & by the time they have reached Earth, they are so weak that they are not easy to detect. These Gravitational Waves were travelling from the point of collision & came to our solar system on September 14, 2015.  Scientists are proclaiming that it’s the most powerful event that has ever been detected as observers of the universe.

The question
The question is that: Are there more powerful events happening or have happened on the farthest side of the universe? Will humans ever be able to detect those events? This event happened 1.3 billion years ago and mankind got the clue merely a century ago then been able to detect just recently. Furthermore, detection of ‘Gravitational Waves’ has confirmed Einstein’s theory that was proposed only 100 years ago. These waves have also confirmed that the waves were themselves created long before than the humans were created. We can understand that powerful event if we try to be among “people of understanding”.

Listen to the universe Scientists are proclaiming that these waves might help humans to listen to the universe, to explore the unknown side of the universe, & to listen to the music of the cosmos. To listen to the universe we have to try to be among “people who listen”. If this is the ‘mind blowing’ event then why it cannot be a ‘mind changing’ event?
The point to note is that these Gravitational Waves caused tiny effect on our planet but the waves were travelling & distorting space & time. These waves must have been created for a reason & they might have affected the beyond side of the universe immensely.

When it comes to meal plans & diet routines, it’s easy for the fitness instructor to make a chart that includes breakfast, lunch & dinner specific items from Monday through Sunday. The instructor generally doesn't consider whether it is easy for the participants to get on to that strict diet routine & meal plan. A fitness instructor can always tell to stay on low carb diet or sometimes high protein diet. A meaning less meal plan is that, which can include things like oatmeal in breakfast, cucumber & avocado salad in lunch, & ginger carrot soup in dinner. Such sort of meal plans are provided with a routine to every participant of the workout. How can everyone strictly follow same meal plan? Each person’s needs are different. You can guess if this sort of menu will be provided, how many of you will be able to strictly stick to this type of routine? It’s easier said than done!
If you do try to act on a meal plan but are unable to act upon that ‘perfect meal plan’, then it will have negative effects on your other chores and moods, like not feeling to study, getting angry, not feeling sleepy, feeling left out and other more severe symptoms.  
Other symptoms you can read in drawbacks section of:

Which Diet Can Keep You Healthy, Smart, & Trimmed ?

Learn about never fail meal plan equation here :

Better to adopt such a plan that least corrupts your mind & body trying to lose fat as fast as possible. You don’t need to be fast and furious but slow and steady. Believe it to know that if you just eat mindfully, do little control on your eating habits, & eat small portions then you can achieve your goals. Consistency is a must for the lifetime. If you suppress cravings, pressurize yourself by not eating, that craving returns with a vengeance in some other form like anger or finally eating mindlessly.

Furthermore if you get on to a ‘perfect’ diet routine with specific ‘meal plan’, how long can you do so? 5 days, 5 months, 5 years? 10 year? No more! This is the reason why you see celebrities both from media & sports put on kgs & kgs of weight after their peak career is over. When they are 'in' they are totally committed to a 'perfect' diet but after that they lose control on their cravings and their body goes in the opposite direction from what you call 'smart'.

The meal plan is that eat home cook food, no-dine outs, no fast food, low salt,eat fresh veges & fruits, cook in light veg oil like olive oil, no ghee, and lots of water but no fizzy drinks. Having a proper routine means time-your-eating. Have lunch, breakfast, & dinner at exactly same time every day. Eat small. Don’t fill up your tummy. Stop eating when you can still eat more. Have dinner 2 hours before bed time. Simple!
Train your brain & eat mindfully that's the meal plan.
Also learn about your satiety power & fullness signals.
