Burger Profile: Don Gorske

Who is Don Gorske you ask?  Don Gorske is know from eating over 23,000 McDonald’s Big Mac hamburgers ( I suppose he completed Big Mac 365).  He’s been in the Guinness Book of Records, featured in two documentaries (“Super Size Me” and “Don Gorske: Mac Daddy”) and is the author of the book  “22,477 Big Macs”.Burger Profile: Don Gorske

Its pretty crazy that he has eaten so many Big Macs and has no health concerns.

From Wikipedia:

“In 2003, Don Gorske ate 741 Big Macs, an average of 2.03 Big Macs per day. Gorske is 6 foot 2 inches tall, 185 pounds, and claims a cholesterol level of 140. His claimed average daily consumption of two Big Macs amounts to 1,080 calories, according to the nutritional information published by McDonald’s; this does not take into account his energy intake from fluids. The USDA recommends about 2,200 calories per day. Gorske consumes mainly calorie-rich food, but he maintains a stable weight by eating fewer calories than the average American.”

Here’s an interesting health article on Don at 180 Degree Health.
