I'm assuming that you are trying to gain weight since you are using a high calorie protein shake. If you are trying to gain mass, and not too picky about gaining a few pounds of fat, then go for 2 grams of protein and 2 grams of carbs for whatever your body weight is at this time. If you are going for lean gains and want to minimize the fat gains, go for 2 grams of protein and 1.5 grams of carbs for every pound that you weigh.

My weight fluctuates between 170-175 depending on how much I eat/drink throughout the day. I try to average about 340-360 grams of protein and about 300-330 grams of carbs. My calorie intake is around 3300 for days that I don't go to the gym and about 3800 on days that I do work out.

Also keep in mind that everyone's calorie needs are different. If you are interested, I can post a formula to help you determine your own personal intake needs in order for you make clean gains.

Drink a gatorade directly after a work out

Also what do you guys think about drinking coke for dinner, maybe 3 times a week? 20oz that is.

I know some people limit themselves off sugar, what are the benefits and such?

Thanks in advance
Post Workout Sugars in the form of Gatorade can help with Recovery and Glycogen Replenishment.

Too much sugar can lead to a spike in insulin which can lead to the body going into a fat storing mode, same with too much carbs.

I personally use Accelerade or Endurox - one of them is good for post ,Accel i think, and other is good during workout, it comes in powder so can mix it - it's similar to Gatorade but more sport oriented with less sugar and 4:1 carb to protein ratio which they claim to be nice.
Gels are also nice and simple way to battle dehydration.
