Man eats 23,000 Big Macs

September 10, 2008 Don Gorske, 54, from Wisconsin, US, claims he has eaten 23,000 of McDonald's Big Mac burgers On August 17, 2008 count, continuing a culinary obsession that began May 17, 1972, and is fed by his obsessive-compulsive disorder.
He stopped ordering fries every day in the '90s, now eating them about once a month. He eats two Big Macs, which each have two beef patties, cheese and a special Mac sauce, along with two parfaits a day. Gorske says he keeps himself in good shape. He says he's 6-foot-2 (1.89 meters) and weighs 185 pounds (84 kilograms), and walks as many as 16 kilometers a day.

Eight ocassions he failed to eat Big Mac:
1) In 1988, the day his mother died, to respect a request she made.
2) Twice because of his job as a prison worker where a number of work emergencies kept him on the clock past midnight which he recorded those days as missed days.
3) Three other times on traveling and couldn't find a McDonald's.
4) He went Big Mac-less on the U.S. holiday of Thanksgiving in 2000.
5) During a 1982 snowstorm that prevented a local McDonald's franchise from opening.
Ever since these burgerless days he keeps a few in the freezer.
