Food equals energy. Even if weightloss is your ultimate goal, you should eat 30 to 60 minutes before you engage in physical activity. Make sure it's at least 200 calories worth, rich in complex carbs (like grains) and protein. Having eaten you'll have the energy to perform better than in a fasted workouts. Same goes for a post-workout meal, try to get protein and healthy fats in to start the healing process.
