why is it that with every time you have protein you're supposed to have some carbs or fat with it? i mean, would it be ok just to have a protein shake by itself, or just to eat some eggs by themselves? or a piece of chicken, etc.??

If you are on a cutting diet the reason you eat fat is so that the protein is digested slower and that the fat is used as fuel for your body
In you are on a bulking diet why would you only want to have just protein? Carbs give your muscles energy to grow.
To answer your question yes you can but it is not a very good way to do it...

Also you need fat to lose fat... and you can't eat much of it with carbs or it goes strait into storage and not used for energy.. so you take it with protein. As said above, if bulking, why wouldn't you throw extra calories down the ol' piehole if you can?

You also want to provide the body with an ALTERNATE source of energy/fuel, so as to not use the protein for this.
