Before we get into it with Ingrid, you should know I was just on her podcast talking: business, wellness, intermittent fasting, morning routines, & friendship. Be sure to listen here.
After interviewing tons of experts on the TSC podcast about intermittent fasting, I knew it was something I had to try.
My friend Ingrid, who I met on Instagram ( head over here for the full story ), encouraged me to try it for 5 days a week. At first I was totally overwhelmed, then it became super easy & almost something I looked forward to because it gave me mental clarity. If you’re interested in reading more about this, check out this post.
Ingrid is always super open with sharing recipes, skinny hacks, & diet tips. She’s just not stingy & always provides so much value on all of her channels, including her podcast.
Ingrid is back on the blog today & this time she’s talking about wet & dry muscles.
Let me fill you guys in on how we met in case you missed her last guest posts ( here & here ).
I have stalked Ingrid online for years. NO BUT LIKE, YEARS.
I found her on a friend of a friend of a cousin’s sister’s page or something when I was deep in an Instagram trance. I liked her right away.
One of my favorite things about her: she was always providing value by sharing her tips & tricks- recipes too.
THEN, one time when I was in Monaco, I SAW HER AT THE HOTEL WE WERE HAVING LUNCH AT. I whispered to Michael that “THAT was THAT girl I followed on Instagram!” Michael looked at me like I was fucking crazy. But first things first, I had to see what she was eating…
You can bet it was protein, greens, fiber & a glass of wine – La Piscine style!
I never went over to say hi, but I DM’d her & we quickly became friends. Since then, Michael & I have met up with her & Gil ( her …
The Skinny Confidential is a place for tips & tricks to simplify and improve your life and let me tell you – this coffee recipe will help you do just that. If you’re like me you already drink coffee, so adding some fiber into your daily cup of joe is a seriously easy health hack. It’s practically effortless.
Today I’m joined by one of my French favorites, Ingrid. She is the founder and creator of THE METHOD®. More than a workout, it’s a lifestyle based on the principles that THE MIND controls THE BODY. Ingrid is sharing her latest wellness tip with us: FIBER FILLED COFFEE.
Fiber plays a key role in overall health and wellness. Fiber helps you feel fuller longer, can help with cholesterol & diabetes AND it keeps everything moving ; ). If you want to dive deeper, definitely check out Tanya, creator of The F-Factor Diet ( if you haven’t listened to her episode of the podcast you’re seriously missing out. She is just fucking fabulous & so smart ). She shares WHY fiber is so important for our health.
If you don’t follow Ingrid, you have to because she is FAB. If you remember correctly, I stalked her on Instagram for years & then we finally met in Morocco. You can read about that whole dance here. When we finally met in Morocco, we connected instantly.
Ingrid, Gil ( her husband ), Michael & I met in this tiny, hip joint in Morocco. It’s Leonardo DiCaprio’s favorite restaurant so we felt very glamorous. Ingrid recommended we order white wine because “it’s a skinny drink- easy to sip, not easy to chug like rosé, so you don’t get too buzzed.” Then she ordered apps for the table- veggies with a small side of pasta because she’s all about balance.
Anyway, I invited her back on The Skinny Confidential for a few reasons: 1.) I think she provides a lot of value- she is always sharing ( not hiding!!! ) her tips, tricks, & secrets. 2.) Most importantly: the French way is JUST different- there’s something effortless & chic about how they eat, drink, & workout- and I want in on it. If I want in on it, I’m sure a bunch of you guys do …
So random- I found her on a friend of a friend of a cousin’s sister’s page or something when I was deep in an Instagram stalk like 4 years ago. I liked her feed immediately ( if you want to see, go DEEP into her Instagram ). She was super open with sharing recipes, skinny hacks, & diet tips. As Ingrid would say, she “wasn’t stingy” with her tips. I liked the vibe.
So I followed her on Instagram, silently watching her skinny recipes from afar for years.
HERE’S HOW CRAZY LIFE IS GUYS: I was in Monaco AND SAW HER AT THE HOTEL WE WERE HAVING LUNCH AT. I whispered to Michael that “THAT was THAT girl I followed on Instagram!” Michael looked at me like I was fucking crazy. But first things first, I had to see what she was eating…from a distance. LIKE MOVE MICHAEL- YOU’RE BLOCKING MY VIEW. Creepy? Come on, we’ve all been there. I wanted to see the whole thing. Like what was she eating to get those abs? Was she having protein? What kind?
Anyway, I wanted to see her in action- I love her philosophy …
