    I think it may be different for everyone.

    The last thing I eat before a heavy karate/jujutsu session is a bagel about 3 hours before training.

    I also swim, and some of the best times I've turned in have been about an hour and a half after eating a piece of pizza.

    YMMV. My window for pre-training snack window closes ~1.5 hours before I start, otherwise I get sick to my stomach. Meat has the longest digestion cycle for me, so I usually don't eat any before training. The absolute best thing I've found is a homemade smoothie with fruit (bananas, peaches, açai), whey protein and whole milk yogurt.

    As an aside, certain kinds of fatty food are awesome for this purpose: avocados, walnuts, almonds, peanut butter -- they'll give you long lasting, slow burning energy for your workout.
