Clemson University administrators say students living the low-carb lifestyle are driving up the cost of meal prices because the college is having to provide more and more meat.

bq. Clemson fiscal affairs director John Newton told his trustees that changing student tastes, along with higher insurance rates, were the reason the school upped meal prices nearly 3 percent this year. One meal in the campus dining hall costs $6.19, a 30-cent increase. For a 15-meal-a-week plan, the $1,022 cost per semester is up $25 from last year.
