THE world record-holder for Big Mac eating is set to break the 30,000 barrier – and has vowed to continue the scoffing McDonald’s burgers until the day he dies.
Don Gorske, who found fame after his brief appearance on the 2004 film Super Size Me, has eaten two Big Macs every day since May 17, 1972, and is currently at 29,877.
He was officially entered into the Guinness Book of Records last year after devouring a his 28,788th in front of judges, a feat no-one in the world has come even close to surpassing.
The retired Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, resident told The Sun Online: “I love Big Macs so much I’ll keep eating them until I die. If I live as long as my dad I’ll pass 40,000.
“There’s a joke I tell people – that if my wife has to put them in a blender then it’s over.”
Incredibly, and in spite of irrefutable medical advice that too much fast food is bad for you, 64-year-old Don says his health is great.
He said: “For some reason, I never get sick, I just I’m lucky. My weight stays the same. I have a cholesterol of 160.
“I keep moving all the time, I like keeping busy. I spend a lot in the summer time going for walks.”
He claims that when he tried a Big Mac for the first time he immediately gobbled two more – then returned twice the same day to devour another six.
He said: “I bit into that Big Mac and it was: ‘Boy, I would love to eat these everyday’ and that’s what I ended up doing.
“The hamburger has always been my favourite food since I was a little kid and when the Big Mac came along that became my favourite food.
“Because I’m a little bit obsessive compulsive I like to eat the same thing every day.”
Since then, he says the burgers have comprised between 90 and 95 percent of his total diet.
“Most days that’s all I eat. I do eat other foods but not very much if you catch me out eating that’s a rare opportunity.” Continue reading here…
