That doesn't sound like all that much. However, it's all relative to your body (stats as well as metabolism). You most certainly CAN eat too much post-workout, though it's the one time that would be the best to eat the most if you're going to do it.

And if you're worried about storing fat with meals like that, pick up some Need2Slin. That way you know you're shuttling nutrients into muscle and not fat.

It really depends on your goals......for a little better insulin control you could do something like sweet potatoes or oats post workout instead of higher glycemic carbs

Yes you can eat too much post workout. Nothing is super magical about this time. It's not like you can eat 20 snickers and because you just got done squatting you aren't going to see negative effects from this. That said, post workout is the best time to eat the biggest amount. Unless you're just gorging like crazy I wouldn't sweat it. And I wouldn't base my feeling of fullness on whether or not I ate too much as many things can contribute to how full you feel.

You need some whey within 15 minutes and a hard meal within an hour. I don't think you can ever eat too much unless you start getting fat lol. I use my abs as a guide, I look bloated alot of the time but I drink almost a gallon a day of milk + other dairy, but can still see my abs on top so I don't worry. Soon as my abs start going away I start eating a little less.

i just ate my fast breaking/post workout meal
3 chicken strips from the walmart deli, a can of turkey chili, a large banana, some strawberries and 3 mini red potatoes made into baked french fries.
it was awesome and i'm not even full
edit: i also took an anabolic pump so that probably helped with the hunger
For me, the action IS the juice.

Simply stated, yes you can consume too much. Post exercise (resistance specifically) the Akt-mTOR pathway, stress signals, and possibly leucin signalling (if present) are fully maximized for global muscle protein synthesis. Afterwards, it seems dependent on amino acid uptake (relative to consumption) to fully activate those pathways which are saturated at ~20g intact protein and any further consumption is irreversibly oxidized (albumin exception). Fatty acid cycling is continuously occurring.
As Rosie stated, any additional calories (in excess of expended) can be stored as fat.

I don't gain weight. So the answer is no I can't overeat post workout. It is not possible.
There was one time back in January after a gym workout I went to dinner and had nine plates
of food and did not gain a single pound from the meal. I have the fastest metabolism on the planet so
there is no way I could ever eat too much after a workout.
Usually my question is, "Did I eat enough?"

man, if your bulking and are worrying about eating too much no matter what time of the day, you are thinking too much. just eat as much as you can as often as you can
shut up and squat!!!

Each shake would be 1500-1700 Calories on top of what your eating currently so 5000 calories or so maybe?
Don't give up, i have faith in you haha
I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me
