I workout at high intensity 5x a week (burning 500-600kcal a session) and have 400kcal Huel for breakfast and lunch, and then a dinner as healthy as I can muster in the evening with a bar here and there (probably average between 1400-1700kcal a day and am a 5ft6" female).
I wonder if I am getting enough BCAA*/magnesium for the heavy strain I am putting my body under from the amount of Huel I have? I am intentionally training at a calorie deficit and feel fine, but I wonder that in the long term I will see less progress/results than if I further supplement.
Any advice greatly appreciated

EDIT: three HIIT cardio/hybrid and two heavy weight days a week
I think the answer to your question is really hidden in the “dinner as healthy as I can muster” - if that is high quality protein matched with steamed veggies then I doubt any supplementation is necessary.
Yeah @JamesCollier my goal is fat loss so I am prioritising protein to sustain muscle mass, using Huel Black has been a big help! @JohnR dinner this week has typically been roasted broccoli and protein in the form of lentils/chickpeas (I am vegan) and a grain or complex carb
Thanks both for the insight, I’ll not bother for now
