In brief: PArtly

Ensure is a complete protein, balanced formula, containing vitamins and minerals.
If needed, could be relied upon, long-term, for meeting nutritional needs (would need to have extra water intake). Typically 250 cals/can; can be used as a meal replacement. Even if you get the version with fiber, may not be adequate. Need activity to burn cals too.

In brief: Not enough

Just ensure is not enough - you might not be healthy you need a combination approach of diet and excercise.
