    Should I be eating before a gym work-out to supply my body with carbs, and then eat afterwards to supply protein? I've been doing this so far, but is this the best method?

    that's fine

    if you want to get techincal, eat some carbs and protein an hour or so before working out. Drink whey protein + malto immediately after working out. Eat protien + carbs + minimal fat an hour or so later.

    Honestly it won't make much, if any, difference what the sources are for all but competiton bodybuilders.
