Anyone check their bloods after IF with carb back-loading?

I do a Leangains-esque paleo type affair; fasted heavy lifting 3x a week followed by a huge meal with plenty of carbs (often paleo but sometimes "cheat"...!), low cal/low carb/higher fat on off days.

It's certainly getting me lean and strong, but I have my concerns about making it long term. Has anyone A/B'ed their inflammation/lipid profile bloods when introducing this kind of diet/lifestyle?

It's certainly increasing my... Ahem... testosterone. Which is a great thing for my wife, but something niggles at the back of my head to say that loads of testosterone = ischaemic heart disease, or is this old coventional wisdom BS?

Finally, don't know if this sounds silly, but I've always planned on building up a good amount of lean muscle and losing fat while I'm relatively young and hopefully my DNA is in good nick. When I'm older, I think I'll be less happy remaining so "anabolic" in terms of cancer risk. But then, perhaps if I'm regularly fasting, this shouldn't be a worry...?
