Health Bloggers Unleashed Contest Winner, and Water

Guess what? It’s time for another fat man video blog. In this vlog I mention the Health Blogger Unleashed Contest winner and rant about drinking water. Back in April I announced the first ever Health Bloggers Unleashed Contest. There were some good submissions, not many, but the ones submitted were good.

The winner is Lisa Newton from Iowa Avenue and Healthy Lifestyle Bloggers. She wrote a great post titled “Is your Food Worth its Weight in Exercise.” It was picked up by a few sites which brought in some decent traffic. I loved it! Thanks Lisa. She is the lucky winner of a Fat Man Unleashed shirt, a free one year subscription to any magazine of her choice, a one month banner ad on FMU, and a site review. Man, I gave away a lot of stuff. I guess Lisa got lucky!


As far as drinking water, well, drink it. But don’t drink too much. Your body usually tells you when enough is enough. I normally just check the color of my urine: If it’s clear I drink less water. It also depends on whether I am having a tough exercise day. Either way just make sure you drink enough.

Enough blabbering, watch the video below.

    I feel bad because I just found you blog, and I’ve been your friend on healthranker for quite a while, and I visit the likes of very frequently. I like your site, and that sounded like a cool contest. Also, when it comes to drinking water, it is important to find a good balance between too much and too little. I tend to believe most people drink too little water, but as you said there can be serious health issues from drinking too much. Now that I’ve found your blog, I’ll be coming back a lot.

    Great minds think alike, I just posted a blog recently on hydration and the color of your urine.
    Such a small Blogosphere.
