First off, read the sticky on top regarding nutrition. 400g carbs seems a little excessive, however (of course, depends on your activity level).
Second, you aren't going to have huge noticeable gains from week to week unless you are just starting off having never lifted before or after taking an extended amount of time off. Be patient.
