Psalm 18:17 "He delivered me from my strong enemy and from those who hate me and abhorred me for they were too strong for me" and because he came to himself he wanted restoration. There were forces he knew he had to be delivered from.
It was these forces that forced him to request his portion etc. A demonic force is a demonic compulsion to do what you will not really love to do. This force forced him to eat swine food.
