On a temporary 1300 cal diet before going back to 2k, what would be the best vitamins to take? Brands etc.

Neither: Depends on who makes it for them as neither makes their own. You need "mixed tocopherols" to benefit your health not just vit e which is usually just one form of the many and is a synthetic which is cheaper but can lead to bad outcomes.
