Bananas as alternative to gu for long runs?

I read about this guy that only eats bananas as fuel for his long runs - and I want to know if anyone else has done this.

I'm asking because my stomach is getting unhappy with gu's and I need to find something for in-run fuel.


Re the bananas, if you do eat bananas during your long run, do you carry them or stash them somewhere?  How do you carry them?


Any alternatives to gu?
