Man eats 30000 Big Macs, breaks record for "Most Big Macs Consumed"

Man eats 30000 Big Macs, breaks record for

We should point out two things first: that Gorske already holds the record for having eaten the most Big Macs; he crossed that threshold according to the Guinness people back in October.

Over the past 44 years, Gorske has only gone eight days in total without consuming a Big Mac. Gorske says that when he ate that first Big Mac, there was only one McDonald's in town, and he had just gotten his drivers' license.

The Big Mac-aholic has also kept close tabs on his own stats over the years, estimating that it took him just 356 days to eat his first 1000 Big Macs - which clocks in at more than two per day. On the day that McDonald's founder Ray Kroc died in 1984, Don ate Big Mac number 5,978. He said that the first time he missed eating a Big Mac was in 1982.

He ate his 20,000 Big Mac in 2004. That includes a 1982 day in which a snowstorm shut down the restaurant, as well as the day his mom died in 1998. USA Today reports that he has thousands of receipts, sandwich wrappers, and containers.

Don Gorske has eaten a Big Mac almost every day since May 1972. "At my last medical check-up I had low cholesterol and my blood pressure was flawless". And he doesn't appear to be suffering for his cause: Ellen DeGeneres had his cholesterol checked in 2003 and came up with 140, and he's run a marathon-with Big Mac No. 21,387 in hand.
