There's no rule of thumb because folks are different. Try both and use what works for you just give yourself time between meals and exercise (before or after)

If you feel fine in the belly, mind, and body then wait until you are done with your workout to eat. If you are super hungry then have a little snack and go for it

Have a snack for some energy but don't have a full meal.

No magic formula... Exercising requires energy to get you through your workout - if you have no energy (which is obtained through food) then your workouts are gonna suck.

That being said, you want to give your body complex carbs before your workouts. How soon before your workouts really depends on your body type and metabolic rate. I personally consumed a shake comprised of almond milk, blueberries, Greek yogurt, protein, oats, creatine, a bit of psyllium, ice!

Liquids are absorbed faster than solids.

Post workout - you MUST eat within 45 mkns or else your body goes starts to eat itself which is not good. I personally have the same shake right after my workouts.

training=fatigue
Carbs=energy
Protein=recovery
Nutrient timing is key. It makes sense to start recovery even before you are completely fatigued. Focus on taking in plenty of light carbs before your workout (i.e. bread, crackers, gummies) then take in 4:1 carb/prot ratio during  your exercise and 3:1 directly after (i.e. 1/2 Gatorade 1/2 H2O 1 scoop of whey during and something like chocolate milk afterwards w/i 1 hr) up to 4 hours afterwards shift the ratio to 4:1 prot/carb for max recovery.

You don't have to be super strict about this but the more energy you take in during exercise the better and the sooner you start recovering the better. Chocolate milk right after works great for recovery and Gatorade during for enery.

So, yes you should eat before during and after a workout. Hope this gets you thinking!

BOTH! I recommend a Greek yogurt or a small package of oatmeal a half hour before you workout.The carbs will help fuel you through your workout so you can go even harder.

You can use Vegan protein powders and there are a variety of them out there.

Fruits have fructose which breakdown in your body faster. They are great post workout; pre workout, I'd stay away as it COULD spike up your sugar levels and then fade off really quick during your workouts.
