    It also depends on what you are eating. The fat, protein, carbo contents of the food you're going to eat and the desired outcome.

    Anything fatty, at least 1 1/2 hours after a work out. Protein rich straight after a workout.

    Eating is beneficial to weight gain.
    Unless you are eating like a anorexic girl.

    Well I say no, how can the extra work and energy your body needs to digest food be a benefit during an intense workout session?
