I definitely think both reasons are distinct possibilities..
Could be too that if you have a history of food sensitivities (like dairy, gluten, etc.) and after eating a clean diet for weeks, your intestinal system feels under attack when you go back to the trouble foods. Happens to me everytime with both gluten and dairy.
Of course, there are are times when you are going to eat off-plan foods. It's called real life. But just know that you may suffer some consequences that are hopefully temporary until you resume your healthy eating plan. What will hopefully occur in time is that you'll learn to weigh whether eating the offending foods is really worth the annoying symptoms they can cause. You would be surprised how easy it then can become to say "no."
Hope this helps...feel better soon!
Yes, I've had similar experiences after eating off-plan foods. Like LSue said, the negative consequences make it that much easier to make on-plan choices!
Hope you've recovered now.......
