Initially it was trial and error, since I use ordinary food sources, so training is generally after a meal or right before a meal. When I've had a large meal and then done squats, I have regretted not allowing it enough time to digest Small meals don't seem to bother me but a huge evening meal is a problem before any exercise that is either bent over, such as rows, or an exercise which compresses the stomach, such as abs crunches and squats.

Usually I eat about 45 minutes before I lift. I have to have a good deal in my stomach or else I do not do well.

I too usually eat some cereal or some oatmeal before working out to get me going. I usually do not wait that long to start lifting.

I have been hooked on bagels lately. Toasted with some cream cheese on it is yummy.

Oatmeal with a little honey and cinnamin and I only wait about 15 mins or so.

I have noticed if I don't eat a fast burn carb with my protein shake post workout I'll get the shakes.

I like the spiced version, because spices are good for you probably.
