Wisconsin man celebrates eating his 30000th Big Mac

Don Gorske ate his 30,000th Big Mac on Friday in Fond du Lac, 46 years after his first.

Don Gorske bites into his 18,000th Massive Mac at Fond du lac Excessive Faculty, in Fond du Lac, Wis., Nov. 6, 2001.

Over the past 44 years, Gorske has only gone eight days in total without consuming a Big Mac.

Gorske says he's eaten at least one Big Mac nearly every day since May 17, 1972.

"My wife was at me to eat more fruits and vegetables, and the parfaits at my local store are only $1", he said. Before her death, she asked Gorske to skip eating a Big Mac on the day she died, in remembrance of her. Big Macs account for 90 to 95 percent of his diet.

That day happened to be Thanksgiving and the restaurant was closed.

He ate his 20,000 Big Mac in 2004.

In case anyone doubts him, he has kept track of his receipts, sandwich wrappers and containers - though he did lose thousands of Styrofoam cartons when a tornado damaged his house in 1990.

Don Gorske has eaten a Big Mac almost every day since May 1972.

He says his cholesterol and blood pressure are normal.

Big Macs have always been Gorske's thing - he's big enough to have a Wikipedia page detailing his history with the fast-food staple. He also appeared in the movie Supersize Me.
