I'm about 130 lbs...how many carbs/protein should I be consuming in my PWO shake?

Right now I'm having about 27g protein and 45g carbs. I have a full meal about an 60-90 minutes later.

Everyone's different. You could probably afford to increase that amount, but it depends on a multitude of factors (bodytype, rest of your diet, etc.).

I agree with Vito. The most important thing is to get it into you fast, and you're doing this. I might consider upping it though, particularly if you're very lean and don't pack on fat easily.
