It's kind of personal preference. But from an athletes perspective, I have a hard time working out at the intensity I wish to without having eaten anything, especially protein before hand.

From a fat loss perspective it really doesn't matter.

What matters most is what you are eating, not when you are eating it.

After as I don't like to exercise on a full stomach.

I try to eat a healthy dinner the night before a major workout (like a one-hour class at the gym) because eating right before I exercise makes my tummy upset.

Then, after class, I make sure to eat a high-protein meal and LOTS of water.
but that's what works for me--everyone's different. My workout buddy eats small meals before and after.

I have oatmeal with almonds, cinnamon & bluberries a hour B4 a work out and then immediately after a slice of turkey and small fruit...lots of water B4, during and after. PS... Bananas are very high glycemic, they spike your blood sugar so I don't eat them... emoticon

Spark People suggests eating something up to 30 minutes after exercising.

Me, personally, as a diabetic, I ahve something before exercising like a Banana or juice or even something sweet because I can get a really low blood sugar spell. Bananas also give me energy.

To each their own.

Just like the topic reads. Does someone want to eat before they workout or after the workout
