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

But to understand just how devoted a fan Gorske is, I think we need to break out the calculator.

Gorske said he has eaten at least one Big Mac nearly every day since May 17, 1972, and has kept the receipts to prove it.

He has actually been the record holder for some time now, as Guinness World Records officially documented him at 28,788 in 2016.

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.

On top of that, McDonald's U.S. headquarters said: "We are lovin' Don Gorske's enthusiasm for our iconic Big Mac sandwich and appreciate his ongoing loyalty". He drove in a snowstorm to buy the sandwich but the restaurant was closed.

A Wisconsin man has eaten 30,000 Big Macs from McDonald's, and he has the receipts to prove it.

He chomped his way into the record books Friday after eating his 30,000th Big Mac.

"Don has a passion for Big Macs like no other", Rause said.

Asked about the haters and doubters, Gorske was serene: "People make fun of me, but it never bothered me". At Don's last checkup both his cholesterol and blood pressure were just fine. According to his own calculations, there have only been roughly eight days in that time when he didn't eat a Big Mac. He also appeared in the movie Supersize Me.

"Maybe I'll be eating it when I catch myself on the news, who knows", he said.
