Hello! Day 4 & craving carbs.

Hi! I'm Martha. I'm 42 and this is my first Whole30. I am on Day 4. My first few days were easy, and I assumed it was because I already had a fairly healthy diet. However, Day 4 has hit me pretty hard and I am craving carbs so bad!! Is this typical for Day 4? Or did I cause it by overexercising last night? (Workout 6 of my 10k training was a 4 miles...a 56 minute run/walk combo). Any advice or encouragement would be appreciated!

Exercise, particularly strenuous calorie burning exercise, in my experience can really cause carb cravings. I used to do crossfit and when done I felt like I’d pass out if I didn’t eat a pile of mashed potatoes. What about eating a mini-meal with veggies protein and fat right after the run? Might help and you’re still on Whole30 so far as I can tell:)
