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.
