A bit frustrated
Starvation mode kicks in when you're actually starving, not metaphorically so, but emaciated. You're not in starvation mode. For all intents and purposes, the way the common phrase is used, it doesn't exist.

Notice I didn't mention weight loss. As muscle density increased, they lost very little weight while getting a much more toned and trim physique. This is my real life experience. Not some junk I read on the internet by someone trying to sell me something.

This isn't random internet junk, it's cited and discussed in scientific journals. Also I really dislike the term tone. Muscle is muscle. Fat is fat. Water retention is water retention. What is "tone"? It's the wrong term to use and I really hate it when people do. Also, muscle development even in untrained novices does not occur at a rate commensurate with fat loss. If you're really a certified trainer you should know just how mother f##king hard it is to build muscle, even on a surplus, never mind a deficit. Most people who think the scale hasn't changed faultily attribute this to the fact that they must have put on muscle. No. You didn't. You either lied to yourself about caloric consumption or you're carrying additional water. A recomp is a ridiculously slow acting process.

The exercise is really only an estimate. I actually stopped entering it long ago because it's sort of a red herring for your TDEE. It's too easy to think you've burned X amount when you haven't.

What has happened to the list of calories consumed during exercise?

No carbs
You don't necessarily lose muscle mass depending on your deficit, protein intake, and resistance routine. Switching over to heavy weights will in all likelyhood preserve the majority of your lean mass on a cut, whether that cut is a result of lowered carb intake, fat intake, or a combination.

If you're trying to put on lean mass, it's never advised (though it is possible) to go low carb. You're just doing yourself a disservice.

There's an entire subreddit devoted to building muscle in a state of ketosis, read up if you're interested:
