Yes, ripe bananas have more simple sugars, unripe bananas are richer in starches. During ripening starches are converted into sugars (~ 20% glucose, 14% fructose and 66% sucrose).
As for the alcohol ...

You need to get exact. You wont be able to track your progress until you know exactly what you're eating. Use excel and map every single calorie/gram. Until you get your diet perfect you wont make progress.

I may get abused for this but eat more and eat a little more fat...........15% is low in my opinion..... I would change my macros to 40p/30c/30f.......... eat like no other. Eat until you feel sick....once the sickness goes away....eat again. Do you have a cheat day???? Eat dirty that day... eat what you want. If 3000kcals is not doing it add 500 kcals per day every week until you begin to see some sort of weight gain.....what is your somatatype??? Are you an ecto? Are you doing cardio? what does your workout look like bro? Easy ways to add calories and slow hunger is to eat more fat.... eating chicken? Stop and eat beef...... start eating more peanut butter etc. Just a few suggestions off the top of my head..........Peace!

3 tuna sandwhiches, amp'd energy drink
whopper from BK (on way to work....was hungry)
tomato chicken cheese tortilla wrap (from work)
schlotskys cheese and chicken wrap, twix bar (woops), 16 oz choc. milk
2 servings of chicken and rice, green beans, 24 oz milk
in 2 hours i will have another helping of chicken and rice and another 16 oz milk w/ an 8 ounce whey protein & milk shake
IMO eat cleaner, and you will be full longer.. I know "personally" when i eat **** food(Fast food, subway, wraps), it doesn't hold me over, and i am hungry again. soon after.
More veggies.. people neglect the importance of veggies with each meal, and their ability to help stay feeling "full" longer.
Like said by others, make sure your getting adequate GOOD fats. Adding nuts to snack on between meals, was a good suggestion.
If i were you, i'd really focus on locking your diet down.

As i said the first time, you should really think about really dialing your diet in..
Do you know what you respond well to? Have you tried various marco's?(high carb, moderate carb, low carb)
That is if you WANT TO.. If your happy eating like that, and you can maintain it, then by all means go for it, but for "most people" that type of eating is not optimal, and wont yield the results that a better diet could.

Here is a quick fit-day of your "diet" now keep in mind this is only so accurate without knowing the exact amounts/brands/etc. Also not including the energy drink.

Eat more fat plain and simple. Keep it to healthy fat sources like eggs, red meat, olive oil, nuts etc.

ANY type of processed foods is not clean food. Junk food equals craploads of empty calories, therefore the more junk you eat, the more calories your body craves in an attempt to get more nutrients in. What is processed, well, you just have to ask yourself where the stuff came from, ”mother earth” or a food factory ? A can of energy drink may have as much sugar as a banana. However, a banana has vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fibre etc. A can of energy drink has artificial colours, flavour enhancers, preservatives, stabilizers….ummm, it is not rocket science which one to choose from
Making a commitment to eat clean is hard but once you start, the benefits of it outweigh most of the desire for comfort foods, trust me, I used to be an ice-cream terminator

in late but im in, i had and still have the same "problem" it started back many years ago when i got really into working out. I was in iraq for a year and had nothing to do with my free time so i started to just workout every day, it got to the point where i couldnt go 2 hours without a meal and i would eat everything that came my way. by time i left iraq i was in the best shape of my life and still to this day even after i stuff myself i eat every 2 hours

I'm the same way. Working out every day really drives up a big appetite. The problem is finding enough food to eat. Luckily, I'll be in college soon and have an unlimited meal plan so I'll be able to eat as much as I want whenever I want.

I dont understand the reasoning when someone says that there is a lot of sugar in fruits but there is candy,poptarts,fast food in their diet. Fruits are gifts to men and they provide so many vitamins, fiber. I cant stand the anti-fruit league. So what these people are trying to say is that they would rather avoid these 100 + types of plants jam packed with nutrients because there is some sugar in it?? Everyone on this site considers themselves a healthy eater, but no diet is healthy without fruits and veg. Chicken breasts and oats will do the job as far as bodybuilding goes (and I eat tons of them) , but at some point you have to invest in longevity and a healthy immune system. am i wrong
