Hello, this is Dr. E. Greetings from New York! I'm so glad you posted your question for me to answer, and I aim to provide you with accurate info.
It sounds like you may be experiencing some colitis. The most common cause of this is a stomach virus which passes on its own within 48-72 hours, the main concern being keeping electrolytes and fluids up. Inflammatory conditions like Crohn's disease can also cause colitis, as can ulcerative colitis, but these would be conditions only to consider if you had had longer term symptoms.
There is also a possibility you're having some gallbladder issues which is making your stools loose, although I would expect you would have some pain with this.
Another likely possibility is dietary - changes in dairy or grease intake can really change the bowel behaviors.
Yes that is the most likely cause. If it doesn't clear up in the next 24-48 hours I want you to see your doctor. Cut down on the fats and dairy for the time being as well as gas producing foods like peppers and onions.
