While significant reversal depends a very high level of compliance, it seems a small percentage of people don't seem to make as much progress as others, given a similar level of self-reported compliance.

However, what one person deems compliance may be different from that of others.

Over the years that I facilitated ten-week reversal support groups, I usually scheduled a pot-luck at the final meeting. For ten weeks we talked about low-fat vegan diets, but on the last meeting, occasionally someone would bring a high fat dish, or one that contained a dairy ingredient. And a few times, someone would bring a dish that contained meat or fish. And these people were the ones who complained the diet wasn't working.

To answer your question, in most cases you compliance is the key, although YMMV (your mileage may vary).
