depends eat carbs before a workout for fat, possibly some types of fats if you're an endurance athletes

eat protein after a workout for muscle repair so i would recommend the carbs before exercise if you're going to do cardio training, or protein after a workout if you're going to do resistance training

Exercising on an empty stomach causes your blood sugar to plummet, so you become exhausted halfway through your workout and can't finish. Exercising on a full stomach is very uncomfortable and gives you painful cramps.

Ideally, you should have a light snack that is high in complex carbohydrates (like a muffin, or a granola bar), 2 hours before exercising. After exercising, you can eat a full meal.

After. You break down muscle fibers when you lift weights. So they are screaming for nutrients and calories. Feed them.

you could eat before, but then have to wait an hour or so because blood is going to stomach to break down food. Best ‘food’ here is a liquid protein drink or shake.

so optimal is a light protein drink before and then a nice protein meal after.

Eat a little before and eat after. Protein is probally the best thing to have after words, like a protein milkshake. It helps so you don't have to keep eating to regain energy.
