You need protein before you work out so I would eat something like a spoonful of peanut butter and then eat like a meal after wards because your body needs protein or you will get sick to your stomach while working out. Hope this helps!
BEFORE. because ,when you will exercise all the fat you had eaten before the exercise will burn. AFTER is NOT good. because if you will work hard by doing so much of exercise ,there will be no use of doing exercise .

It is important you fuel before your workout, but keep it simple such as easily digested carbs. Refuel after your workout with light protein, and complex carbs. Remember to keep (re)hydrated during and after.
If your going to eat before you work out try eating fruits like apples or strawberry's. Or if you want you can even make a fuit smoothie. Because if you go out & lets say jog ; it can be really bad, like you can faint & you don't want that to happen.
it all depends on your own preference/circumstance. Sometimes its good to eat before and after. Your body needs fuel and in order to get the most out of your workout, you must energize beforehand. However, after your workout, you will also need to rehydrate and repair salts and electrolytes that you sweated out (as well as energy), so drink lots of water and eat something like an apple or yogurt ^__^
A full glass of water about an hour before exercising makes the workout have more effect. Be sure not to skip a meal but you don't want to interfere with digestion. More blood goes to the digestive tissues after a meal, so eat lightly before and normally after.
You want to eat before and after. I'm not talking like a full meal though. You want to eat a pre-workout and after workout snack to help fuel and rebuild your body. Also the time frame you eat them in is important. Don't take my word for it though look it up and do your research because it's your body and your life.
In my experience,I find it beneficial to eat a light protein based meal 30 minutes before excercising.After my program I indulge again in a light protein based meal.But this is me.I have a moderate fitness regimen.What are you goals and what methods will be used to achieve your goals and does your doctor say it's okay to do what you want to do.
