We're all used to it by now; when the summer arrives, so do the fashionable diets that claim to completely transform our bodies in a few short weeks. They take over our news feeds, magazine racks and even the supermarket aisles. But is there some truth in the latest summer health trends?

My mum has announced that she will eat less meat. She now has two meatless meals a day. It's a big step for someone who - as much as she respects and supports my lifestyle choice - never wanted to try any of my food, dismissing it as something "for vegans only".

It's beautiful, disturbing, raw and powerful all at once. It melts your heart one minute and makes you squirm the next. And if it makes you stop eating meat or question the treatment of farm animals that are simply bred and killed for food then Director Bong Joon Ho has done his job.
