Proteins and Carbs

All of my runs so far have been fueled mostly off carbohydrates. This seemed normal to me until it was explained to me that the runners "wall" is caused by the body running out of carbohydrates and switching over to protein. This lead me to ask myself, "Why not just run off of protein all together?"

Next week I intend on trying just that. I am going to try to limit my dinners to something high in protein and drink my protein shake in the morning before a run. If I notice less crashing and better overall performance I may stick with it.

Does anyone have any experience with this? Am I understanding everything correctly?
