Every morning as soon as I get out of bed I promptly have a small breakfast (usually a bowl of oatmeal with berries and protein powder mixed with milk and a cup of coffee) and it's straight to the gym. (Which alternates between running on the treadmill and lifting depending on the day of the week).

depends on how much you ate and what exercises you plan to do. I usually need about 15-20 mins but I usually have something light, like a protein shake, before I workout.

for me it also depends on how intense I am going to be working out.

Certainly, some blood flow gets diverted to the gut to absorb energy, and isn't available to deliver oxygen and energy to muscles during a workout.

Whether this is an issue will depend on how big a meal it was, and how intensely you are working out.

Endurance athletes (eg. marathoners, long distance bike riders) often eat DURING their workout, to ensure they have enough energy to complete a multi-hour workout. But they tend to snack frequently and lightly.

After a large meal, it may be fine to do something moderate (eg. walking), but you may want to wait a couple of hours before doing a more intense workout.

I'm the type of person I can't go on empty so I usually have a small snack if I'm doing a high-impact workout, but if I'm going out for a bike ride or lifting weights, then I can eat away with eating a bit more since I'm not jumping around.

It really depends on how much and what you are eating, but also can vary depending on the person. If it's a larger meal, you may want to try waiting at least an hour or two. If it's more of a snack (up to about 200 calories), about a half hour might be a good time to wait. I think it also depends on what type of exercise you are doing, as well as how much/how heavy of a meal you had. It may take a little bit of experimenting to see what works best for you, but here is an article that you may find helpful in finding what works best for you:
