Anyone have any ideas for food that will keep me full for longer?

You might try meat with plenty of fat, and hard boiled eggs.

Have you just started paleo? Is this your first time cutting out sugar and starchy vegetables? If so you may be experiencing sugar withdrawal. The first time I did a 30 day dry out of sugar I spent about 5 days being insanely hungry no matter how much food I shovelled into my face. I quickly realised it wasn't hunger pangs (i.e. physically empty) but insulin spiking due to no sugar in my system. It passed after that first few days and after that my hunger rhythms became much more stable and less intense.

Agree with above. Do you eat enough proteins and fats?

I interchange between full-on paleo and lower carb and I'm always more hungry on lower carb then on paleo. Paleo does take a few days to get used to, but after that I feel full most of the time.
With paleo I snack a lot of boiled eggs. Also fried salmon with fresh guacamole wrapped in salad is an easy 'fast-food' (takes me about 15 minutes to make) that gets me full. I eat 2 to 3 meals a day when paleo. Lots of veggies, but also protein and I use lots of butter or oil.

When I just need a small, easy snack I take nuts. Lots of variety there. Macadamia, almonds, hazelnut, walnut, pistachio, ... Also just frozen fruits blended with maybe some coconut milk and sometimes some honey or raisins.

But really, make sure you eat enough with your meals: veggies, protein and fats.
