Don Gorske – Big Mac Man

I have only had a McDonalds Big Mac once, when I was a kid I never had one because I did not know that you could order without special sauce. I would eat Quarter Pounders instead.

Never eat fast food with your eyes closed, you will realize that those burgers are truly terrible tasting.

Anyway There is a guy name Don Gorske, from Wisconsin and he claims to have eaten 23,000 Big Macs since 1972 having at least 2 every day.

Don said he eats this many Big Macs, and eats them everyday, because his obsessive-compulsive disorder fueled his love for only Big Macs.

Don Gorske Started Eating Big Macs a long time ago

He began eating the burgers on May 17, 1972, and has kept every receipt to prove his achievement.

The 54-year-old has written a book about his experience after he became fascinated with the way the fast food chain tracks its customer numbers so he decided to track his own consumption.

You would think that eating all of these Big Macs would make Don really fat that is what I expected but he is 6ft 2in tall and weighs 185 pounds and burns off the Big Macs by walking up to 10 miles a day.

Each day he eats two Big Macs, which are made up of two beef patties, cheese and a special Mac sauce.

“I enjoy them every day. I need two to fill me up.

“Sometimes people call me a freak but it doesn’t bother me. I just say respect people as they are,” he said.

“I just want to make sure people understand I’m not going to change.”

Don Gorske used to order fries every day in the 1980s but began to cut back in the 90s. He now limits himself to once a month. I myself think that the highlight of McDonalds is the fries but on the other hand they are really high in sodium (salt) and are made of deep fried fat. I will certainly never eat them everyday.
