As far as the amount of protein, you should probably talk to your clinic about that. I'm not sure if they tailor the first week to the individual, or if it's the same for everyone. It would make sense that they would raise it (at least after the first week anyway) to account for the extra exercise you do, but hey, they're the experts.
But as for the starvation mode, in my opinion, I think this diet proves that it's a myth. I've been under 900 calories a day for 6 months while doing the same amount of exercise, and I have steadily lost weight the entire time. If starvation mode were a reality, my body would have long since begun to hold on to the weight rather than continuing to lose. That's my opinion anyway. :-)
