Man Has Eaten 30000 Big Macs, Breaks World Record

Gorske ran the San Diego Marathon in 2006 - carrying his 21,387th Big Mac over the finish line.

A man dubbed the "Big Mac Daddy" ate his 30,000th Big Mac at a Wisconsin McDonald's on Friday. 'It's pretty much two Big Macs a day'.

"While he has managed through the years to preserve and categorize most everything related to his Big Mac obsession, he did lose about 7,000 or so Styrofoam cartons that were damaged in a tornado that blew the soffits off his house on June 2, 1990", the paper reported. There have only been eight days that have not included a Big Mac with the most recent being November 23, 2011.

He's just eaten his 30,000th Big Mac at the same McDonald's where he got his first ultra-beefy burger in 1972.

WBAY reported that 64-year-old Don Gorske reached the milestone at a McDonald's in Fond du Lac, Wisc. on Friday. He said he thought he had a big mac saved in the freezer but was mistaken. In case you're wondering, he says his cholesterol and blood pressure are normal - and he weighs five pounds less than he did 5,000 Big Macs ago. He made a promise to his mum who made him promise not to eat a Big Mac on the day she died on 27 April 1988.

When McDonald's debuted the Grand Mac and Big Mac Jr. sandwiches previous year, Gorske handed out bottles of Big Mac sauce to the lucky first customers at a McDonald's restaurant in Wauwatosa. He was featured in the movie "Supersize Me".

But it's an absurd number of Big Macs.

"It's some that's just so good, it's just like chocolate and I couldn't get enough of at first, but still it is my favorite sandwich", he said.

To this day, the Fond du Lac man says the fast food doesn't make him feel sick. "Maybe I'll be eating it when I catch myself on the news, who knows?" he says.
