I've been thinking about this one and have to respectfully disagree on a couple of points.
1) 1 lb of weight loss per week is a bit low for someone at close to 30% BF. Without risking metabolic slowdown someone at that body comp. and weight should be able to maintain closer to double that for sometime before metabolism down regulates. At that point a diet break and/or refeed should remedy the issue and get things running again.
2) Ratios in diets are by and large, pointless. Nutrients, if one is into counting cals/macros, tend to be better determined on a per lb. basis.
There's nothing wrong with going aggressive to start out and moving to a more moderate approach when you get closer to your goal. At that point metabolic slowdown and protein loss will be legitimate issues.
And if you don't think kettleball squat cleans are difficult, I say, step up to the med-ball
