I agree that it really depends on the person. For me I usually eat my entire breakfast and give myself 1 hour before my morning workout, same goes before my evening work out and its just worked out fine.

On days where I have to workout in the afternoon I have carbs with a little bit of protein about 1/2 an hour before working out; usually an apple and 1 tbsp of peanut butter and I do just fine.

The only time I've ever had trouble with eating after exercise was when I increased the intensity of my workouts and began having bad stomach cramps after fast runs. I had to wait at least 3 hours before I could eat. That lasted a month and my doctor said it was due to increasing intensity too quickly and my body couldn't keep up.
