    I workout at 430AM every day and I aim to have some carbs pre (banana or couple rice cakes usually) and then something with carbs and protein right after. I don't like to be full when I lift but get some carbs in for energy. Hope that helps!

    I workout 5 days a week starting around 6 am. I always eat breakfast first. My first post breakfast snack is usually by 8 am.

    When cutting I find that my workouts suffer if I don't eat breakfast before. During maintenance phases or when I'm bulking I prefer eating afterwards.

    Personally I need to eat before my workouts for my best performance. Not too much but something

    Unless it's going to be a particularly long run, I always eat after. I find it more comfortable to run on an empty stomach.

    Sometimes before, sometimes after, sometimes both. Sometimes neither before or after.

    I wake up at 6 and start working out by 6:10, I usually don't wake up hungry. I drink some chocolate milk on the drive in, get to work at 8 and eat oatmeal there. If I eat first I feel like I'll puke. Plus it feels like it really weighs me down. I don't think its strange that other people eat first though- you need to figure out what works for you.

    Depends on your time and relative dimensions in space....

    Unless I'm going hard for two hours plus then workouts just fit in my day.
    Breakfast (as in eating early in the morning for the pedants out there!) is completely optional for me, I've got plenty of fuel on-board already and it doesn't affect my training performance either way.

    I eat before. Most studies would tell you to eat before as well to give those muscles energy. Plus that food will help be a fuel to burn more after you're done with your workout.

    It depends how you feel with doing either one. I get stomach cramps if i eat too soon before, so I don't eat breakfast before. If I am working out in the late morning my breakfast is 2-3 hours before.

    I eat breakfast after my morning workout. I make a protein shake with 2 scoops of protein, peanut butter, benefiber, banana, and coffee sometimes.
