This Woman’s Incredible Two-Pound Transformation Proves That The Scale Means Nothing

Ask most people how they feel about their weight and they’ll probably say they wouldn’t mind losing a few pounds.

Mother of four Adrienne Osuna, however, is proving that health and fitness have nothing to do with numbers on a scale. For years, yo-yo dieting, along with four pregnancies and a miscarriage, had taken their toll on her body. After her youngest son turned one, she decided to quit dieting once and for all. Instead, she turned to lifting, intermittent fasting, and clean eating to make a lasting change.

Getting in shape isn’t easy, so I can’t say that I blame them for exploring their options, but why go down these bizarre paths?

22 Scientific Facts That Will Make Cooking Way Easier

My mom is a cake decorator, and one of the first things she taught me is that cooking and baking are all about science.

The ingredients and temperature combine to create chemical reactions that can only be explained through scientific means. Each unique recipe results in something all its own, and we can thank the scientific method for that. We don’t think about cooking food this way often enough, and we’re potentially missing out on some of the hidden wonders of the culinary world.

Here are some amazing science hacks to kick your cooking up to the next level!

1. For chewy cookies, melt butter first to release the water inside. For crispy cookies, use room-temperature butter instead.
