When you start IF you generally start with like 1-2 of 15-18 hour fasts... not 30+ hours like fasting all day. If you do that schedule I see some epic fail coming your way regardless of what your goals are.

Training mostly for performance and strength but wouldn't mind dropping the body fat% a bit. Open to your thoughts/ ideas/ concerns.
Performance and strength you MAY need more carbs during the week depending on what you are doing and how your body reacts to low carb diets. Carbs aren't necessarily the devil or anything, heh.

I would just go Paleo and focus on high quality foods + maybe a short fast here and there IF it helps you.
