What causes a person to feel hungry?

Several other hormones influence hunger. Two major ones which tip the balance between hunger and fullness are leptin and ghrelin. Leptin is released from the body's long term fat stores, which we all have, and suppresses hunger while ghrelin causes stomach rumblings as a physical reminder to eat.

Beside this, why do I get hungry after eating a banana?

Bananas are full of potassium, simple sugars, and amino acids, which is why they make such great recovery foods after a hard workout or run. HOWEVER, all these simple sugars spike your insulin levels, resulting in a crash in your blood sugar. Alas! You are now hungry.
