I think this might not be a great idea. Your body needs a certain amount of readily available fuel, especially in the morning/afternoon. Cutting out all carbs/more carbs might send your body into starvation mode, where is scrabbles furiously to hold on to your fat, because it thinks you're literally starving.
I'd try go get some whole grains in - porridge/wholegrain bread/brown rice/pasta etc every day, earlier on. In the evenings, proteins calorie for calorie have a higher satiety level, so lean meats with lots of veg/pulses should satisfy you. I'd also recommend a sucky sweet if you find you get hungry in the late evening - they really help!
It gets easier, too. Your body will adapt to the new eating pattern of food intake and you'll struggle less with the craving. Hang in there!!!!
