Hi there.

This guy at a local supplement store recomended a protein shake for me which consists of 54 gr protein, 82 gr carbs, 3 gr creatine and 3 gr glutamine.
H said that this would be ideal for some muscle building. My only question is..will all those carbs make me fat or what?

I weight 210 lbs and work out 4 times a week.

carbs don't make you fat

excess calories make you fat

Well iŽd imagine too much carbs will make you fat, any way, is there any advantage in adding carbs to protein shakes?

Sounds like a weight gainer to me. If you can afford the 500 calories per shake, then go for it. Look at what you consume trhoughout the day, rather than what's in one particular meal.

No, too many calories make you fat.
