A fitness and nutrition coach has lifted the lid on the one concept that changed her life and is now changing the lives of her clients.

Ashley Poladian, 34, from Chicago, Illinois, is known as @proteinsnackqueen on TikTok, where she shares her fat loss tips and recommendations for high-protein, low-calorie meals.

She recently spoke about creating identity-based habits to become the best version of yourself, a concept she discovered in James Clear’s bestselling book “Atomic Habits.”

“This concept was the most important concept I used to change my life,” she said in the video posted last month.

Poladian noted that his clients typically focus on fat loss, but in order for them to achieve their goals, “they need to make a series of lifestyle changes.”

She remembers reading Atomic Habits, a guide to creating good habits and breaking bad ones, saying there was one piece of advice that stuck with her over the years.

“Of all the chapters in this book, the concept that has changed my life the most and continues to change the lives of my clients is something called an identity-based habit,” she said.

As Clear explained in her book, you need to focus on who you want to become and create a new identity in order to build lasting habits.

He offered a two-step approach to building identity-based habits, saying you should “decide what kind of person you want to be” and “prove it yourself with small wins.”

Poladian gave the example of someone who wants to run a marathon, saying they need to start identifying as a runner.

“Habits only stay when they’re part of who we are,” she told viewers. “Your current behaviors are simply a reflection of your current identity. What you do now is a direct reflection of the type of person you think you are.

Poladian explained that she changed her life by identifying with the qualities of the person she wanted to be, saying:

“If you want to make lasting change, you have to change your identity.”

After familiarizing herself with identity habits, she began by thinking about key values, qualities and principles she admired in others and built an archetype of the person she wanted to be.

Poladian said a lot of it was about “breaking down the narrative you’ve already formed about yourself.”

‘How do you reprogram a new narrative, a new identity for yourself, and hold that so close to your heart that every time you’re faced with a decision, you automatically think, ‘What would I do better myself? Ashley 2.0? How would she handle that? You just have to start believing new things about yourself,” she explained.

The coach advised keeping a journal and writing down what the best you would look like, including what you think, eat, do, read and wear.

Poladian’s video struck a chord with fans who thanked her for the advice, saying she inspired them to try it for themselves.

‘I’m going to work on it for 30 days!!!’ one person wrote.

“I’ve heard of this concept so many times, but you made it clear with your phrasing – thank you!” another added.

Someone else agreed that creating identity-based habits has also changed her life, saying that every morning at 4:52 a.m. she says to herself, “I’m a workout person and that kind of thing. nobody would go to the gym.”
