Man Sets New Record for Eating More Big Mac’s Than Anyone Else In History

No comments

Since May 17, 1972, Don Gorske has eaten at least one of McDonald’s famous Big Mac burgers every single day.

The Big Mac lover became a minor celebrity when he briefly appeared in the documentary Super Size Me, in which comedian Morgan Spurlock put his stomach to the test and ate three McDonald’s meals a day for an entire month.

In just one month Spurlock experienced worrying test results regarding his liver, blood-pressure and heart, but his month long fast-food fest pales into insignificance when compared to Gorske’s.

Last week, the 64-year old from Wisconsin ate his 30,000th burger, and talked about the special occasion with The New York Post. “I love the patties, I love the sauce, I can’t get enough of it,” he explained. “I’m trying to get to 40,000, and that’ll take me another 14 years.” So, if he’s intending to still be eating two Big Macs a day for the next 14 years, that would be 60 years of non-stop fast food. That’s a sentence I never thought I’d write!

You can see just how much he’s loving it in the video below:

Now, if you’re anything like me then you might be thinking how is this dude even alive?! Surely he’s super unhealthy. However, according to Gorske that’s just not the case.

“I’m healthy as a horse. I weigh 190 pounds, and my cholesterol is 165,” he said. “I’m better than normal.”

Big Macs make up approximately 90% of Gorske’s diet. He recently added McDonald’s Fruit N Yoghurt parfait to his diet, upon a request from his wife for him to eat more fruit.

“My wife was at me to eat more fruits and vegetables, and the parfaits at my local store are only $1,” he said.

One accusation that gets thrown his way is that he suffers from a form of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, but Don isn’t having any of it.

“It’s not a disorder at all,” he said. “Eating Big Macs doesn’t affect me as far as my health goes. Eating Big Macs is what I love.” You do you, bro.
