About half an hour before, never after. Don't do too much, but do enough to get yourself out of breath and your muscles burning, a few times a day - for instance, when you get up, before lunch, before dinner, and before bed. Fifteen minutes each time should be enough.

If you’re going to exercise after then you need to wait a few hours because I find I feel quite ill if I exercise within about 2 hours after. It’s overall better to exercise before dinner. Also I think (?) that you burn off your food faster if you’ve just exercised because your metabolism will be higher so it will help you lose weight.

If you've just eaten, your stomach is more likely to be sensitive to the movements. Not that you'll necessarily make yourself sick - you just might get uncomfortable and not be able to perform at your peak.

Blood and fluids can do one of two things. They can carry oxygen and glucose around your body and muscles in response to strenuous exercise, or they can assist in the functioning of the digestive system. They respond very poorly to being asked to do both. Ever seen an athlete throw up after a race? That illustrates the problem. You will be much happier exercising on an empty stomach.
