I know Tom Venuto's work and very much respect it, but you want to keep in mind that this is a Body-for-LIFE forum. That advice isn't aligned with BFL and is also more typically aligned with maintenance and less with losing.
Tom still believes that 3500 calories make up a pound and we now know this is not necessarily true. There is so much information out there and some very good, but for the purpose of simplicity and clear direction, let's stick with a plan that is absolutely proven and supported by BFL.
300g of carbs is much too high, even for an approximate. Carb cycling is complicated. I have done it with great success, but it's really not appropriate advice for someone coming to first nail down the basics.
The BFL method would call for her carbs to be at 160g, which is not too low. I am the 2011 Runner-Up and I used the BFL plan by the book. This absolutely works!
160 is not a low carb diet at all. It wouldn't put her anywhere near Keto Zone.
Remember that Tom's program is complex and to do part of it is not efficient. I think Tom's program works, but if I were going to do that then I would do that. You are confusing things by giving some advice from that, but not including everything the plan would include.
160g of Carbs
160g of Protein
People should do their first BFL Challenge 100% by the book. By all means make some reasonable and educated adjustments later, but the plan is set so while getting into it, there's no reason to throw in a monkey wrench.
