    Depends. If I am doing less than an hour I don't eat before. If I am planning a longer workout I try to have at least a snack 1/2 hour before. I get dizzy if I don't have something before a longer or more intense workout. I only have BIG breakfasts on weekends and usually skip lunch or only have a snack (100-250 calories).

    I just did 30 day shre this morning.
    28 mins total with warm up and cool down so I didn't eat before and ate right after. Didn't feel too badly during it.

    If I work out in the morning, I have a quick snack before I go to the gym and have a proper breakfast later

    I work out in the mornings on the weekends and eat breakfast afterwards. The size depends on my hunger level. I suggest you try different ways until you find what works best for you.

    I get up at 5:00am to work out so breakfast before isnt really going to happen so I usually workout on an empty stomach and I have no complaints.
    Afterwards - I usually have oatmeal and a fruit :)

    When I'm hungry, usually after my gym workout. BIG breakfast, but only because I love it.
