Default everyday workout + IF ?

My goal is to lose fat and maintain my muscle.

In my martial art Yiquan we are required to do body weight exercises everyday. Three different kinds of pushups, slow ten second down and up push ups as well as static pushup posture, pullups, dips, climbing into the wall, sanding the floor, and I do kettlebell swings and planks extra.

My Yiquan class is mon/wed 7pm-9pm

I do HIIT jog/sprint on tu/thur/sat

I'm also doing IF, feeding phase is 1-9ish, and I'm wondering what nutrients I should mostly be eating, and when. Carbs before exercises, protein after? My main goal being to lose fat, i'm not sure what I should be doing here.

Well, I've got a few questions... What is your diet like now? Paleo, Zone, S.A.D.?

As much as I dislike the approach for sanity reasons. You need to figure out quantity and quality first. IF is the last tool most pull out of the box.

Figuring out the first two makes the third most effective.
And if you don't think kettleball squat cleans are difficult, I say, step up to the med-ball
