Calories dictate fat loss or gain. From what I have read IP dieters are consuming 700-900 calories a day, Medifast dieters are at 800-1000 per day.

Based on the slight difference - I'd say if people are losing faster on the IP diet it is because they are more compliant. The reasons one would be more compliant on the IP diet are debatable but probably have to do with high cost and in person support/accountablity.
