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

Man Eats 30000th Big Mac, Setting New World Record

A retired U.S. prison guard has eaten his 30,000th Big Mac, almost 46 years after eating his first.

A 64-year-old Wisconsin man has eaten his 30,000th Big Mac and not only has lived to tell the tale, but claims low cholesterol and "perfect" blood pressure.

Gorske's love for Big Macs started more than 40 years ago when he ate his first one on May 17, 1972. He said that the first time he missed eating a Big Mac was in 1982. That includes a 1982 day in which a snowstorm shut down the restaurant, as well as the day his mom died in 1998.

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.

The last day he didn't have a Big Mac was Thanksgiving Day in 2011, when McDonald's was closed and he thought he had a burger in the freezer.

Gorske, who has thousands of Big Mac cartons in his home, said several people have suggested he suffers from a form of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Among the other Big Mac-related facts he knows is the date that McDonald's switched from lettuce leaves to shredded lettuce - February 10, 1999.

Gorske has appeared on the "Rachael Ray Show", "Jimmy Kimmel", "Lopez Tonight", "I've Got a Secret", "Oprah" and "Inside Edition".

Gorske - famously featured in the 2004 documentary "Super Size Me" because of his obsession with the 563-calorie, fat-laden sandwiches - insisted that his health is great.
