Which one works best for you? For me it all depends on the type of training I will be doing that day. What is the case for you?

Empty or near empty stomach is much better for me. I feel queasy on a hard gym workout or bike ride if I have had very much to eat. Had one of my hardest workouts ever the other day, plus rode bike 9 miles to the gym and 9 miles after. THEN I was ready for breakfast. I rode my bike in hilly territory yesterday for 50 miles. I had coffee w 1/2 + 1/2 and a handful of peanuts before the ride. At mile 23 I had a slice of banana bread.

A small breakfast. If I work out on an empty stomach I get nauseous.

Definitely empty stomach. It's where my intermittent fasting comes into play. The MOST I'll eat (an hour) before a workout is some baby food or some fruits. Other than that, I definitely have workout on an empty stomach since I feel a lot more energized. If I have a big meal before a workout, I'm done. I'll start passing gas, I'll feel lethargic and lazy.

It annoys me when my friends or co-workers ask me why I don't eat much throughout the day. They think I have an eating problem, when in fact its the total opposite. There's a difference between having an eating problem and CONTROLLING your appetite. After a workout, I can eat most my friends under the table 2 times over.

Irrespective to the training or type of training I take complete empty stomach workout is best for me as it eliminates the heavy feeling that I get(I eat healthy but not much though) also it removes the sort of thing you get as food will come out soon.It also helps me feel more alert and active during workouts because if you've had food initially you'll feel a little dull to begin with at workout.

It is good to have liquid intake in small amounts either during or before workouts/training(It works for me)

Seems split 50/50! I get dizzy with no food, weak if I only have a small bite, and naseous if I eat a full meal. The only thing that works for me is a small meal.
