So what if it makes you fuller? What matters is what you're putting into your body. With a banana, while it may not be as "filling" as a Snickers bar, will not cause health issues. A snickers bar, which is loaded with corn sugar and soybean oil, will cause a large inflammatory response. It's loaded with polyunsaturated fat as well, which is the major cause of heart disease. While a banana may not keep you as sated, it also won't put you into an early grave. If you're that concerned about staying full, throw a can of coconut milk into your backpack and drink that along with the banana. That's about 600 calories of MCT-based fat right there, which will keep you full of energy, especially when paired with the banana. Even a jar of almond butter and a teaspoon or a bag of nuts could come in handy, although I'm not a big fan of nuts because of the high n6 content with nary an n3 in sight. Still, it beats the hell out of a Snickers bar.
