Im 25, i train 3-5 hours a day doing bodyweight movements and gymnastic-esque stuff. Most of it is moderate intensity.

My diet has been appalling, about 3500cals a day from sugary foods after training (chocolate, doughnuts, biscuits, ice cream, all refined stuff). Plus lots of saturated fat, protein, veggies, paleo food.

My joints are killing me, my cholesterol is high, my performance has become sloppy and slow, i feel very tired all the time. Please help, im planning to take 2 weeks off from training. I already know about paleo, im not gonna do high saturated fat or red meat. 

Im thinking of doing something like:

Eggs + Olive oil + fruit/veg

Chicken + olive oil + fruit/veg

Fish + olive oil + fruit/veg

Nuts + olive oil + fruit/veg

I want to do a meditaranean style paleo diet and not something extreme like high fat as ive been trying that for over a year and it hasnt worked. Please help. Im 20% bodyfat and need to get lean and shredded.

Taking a break from training sounds like a good idea. 3-5 hours everyday is a lot, and you may be suffering overtraining syndrome. When you start training again, I would suggest recovering every other day at least - doing nothing more strenuous than normal walking.

You can lose weight on any hypocaloric plan. If you want to do mediterranean paleo, then google 'mediterranean paleo.' Whatever you choose, you will have to eat less. That may happen spontaneously if the food is more satiating than what you used to eat. If not, you'll have to control portion size to avoid overeating.
