Some would say, depending on whether your bulking up or cutting up, that you shouldn't eat carbs in your last meals of the day unless you workout later in the day/night.

Tell us your stats first.

You should definitely add some more carbs to the postworkout shake.

@ 3000 calories,I assume that you want to bulk up isn't it?
Well,if so,it's a good diet for bulking,especially if you are a hardgainer.

You should have 3grams of carbs for every 1gram of protein in the postworkout shake.

So,~37,5grams of protein/~110grams of carbs.The postworkout meal has to be the second most caloric dense meal of the day after breakfast.

Then,there in no problem with the glutamine as it doesn't compete with the protein in absorbion.

Yes,glutamine is fine where it is.

As for the sandwich,assuming that it causes a very fast insulin response,it's ok,as long as you don't fill it with butter or any other fat at all.

i would suggest to concentrate your refined/non-fiberous carbs to your post workout shake and meal. I would also increase protein somewhat**and compensate by dropping some carbs**. Also, a lot of your protein is coming from powders- why not add more real food sources?

His carb intake is more than adequate.Why to increase protein while when you eat above maintenance,protein is not used as a fuel source?
