Donald A. Gorske (born November 28, 1953) is an American world record holder known as the 'Big Mac enthusiast'. He is best known for having eaten 30,000[1] Big Mac hamburgers from the U.S. fast foodchainMcDonald's in his lifetime, winning him a place in the Guinness Book of Records. He claims the Big Mac constitutes 90-95% of his total solid food intake. A resident of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, he is featured in the documentaries Super Size Me (2004) and Don Gorske: Mac Daddy (2005), and is the author of 22,477 Big Macs (2008).


Gorske claims that after getting his first car, the first place he went to was the McDonald's on Military Road in his hometown of Fond du Lac on May 17, 1972.[2][3] He purchased and ate three Big Macs at lunch time. He then returned two more times that day to consume a total of nine Big Macs the same day he discovered the burger. He further claims to have eaten 265 Big Macs in the following month, an average of 8.5 Big Macs per day. If true, this would be equivalent to over 4,600 calories and 247 grams of low quality fat daily, for a total of 143,100 calories and 16.9 pounds of fat in one month. He also claims to drink almost nothing but Coca-Cola and, according to Super Size Me, he rarely eats the fries. At first, Don kept all the boxes of Big Macs he ate in the back of his car. He met and proposed to his wife, Mary, at a McDonald's in 1975. In addition, he has a statue of Ronald McDonald in his yard. Gorske also states that he has only eaten one Burger KingWhopper sandwich in his life in 1984 and will never eat one again. Gorske claimed that he first tried a Whopper after his friend bet him $5 to do so and that he then spent the money on Big Macs.

In 2003, Don Gorske ate 741 Big Macs, an average of 2.03 Big Macs per day. Gorske is 6 foot 2 inches tall (1.88m), 185 pounds (83 kg), 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;[4] this does not take into account his energy intake from fluids. The USDA recommends about 2,200 calories per day.[5] Gorske consumes mainly calorie-rich food, but he maintains a stable weight by consuming fewer calories daily than the average American. He says his taste buds have always fluctuated in sensitivity, so he often eats a Big Mac without being able to taste it.[6]

On May 17, 2011, Gorske ate his 25,000th Big Mac at his favorite McDonald's restaurant in Fond du Lac.[7] On his birthdays, he puts candles in a Big Mac like a cake, and when Christmas time comes around, he treats himself to more Big Macs while his family has more traditional Christmas food. He claims that since he ate his first Big Mac, there have only been eight separate days in which he did not eat a single Big Mac. One of these days was the day his mother died, and he did not eat a Big Mac to respect her request.[2] Other days included a 'Snow Day' when McDonald's was unable to open due to snow, a Thanksgiving, days he was traveling and could not find a McDonald's, and various days Gorske had to stay at work past midnight. Gorske has since started keeping an 'emergency stash' of Big Macs in his freezer for emergencies and snow days.[8] Gorske commented in 2008 that his obsessive–compulsive disorder is what fuels his love of Big Macs, noting he also records when and where he eats his Big Macs in a notebook that he always carries, and that he has kept every burger receipt in a box.[2]

Gorske ate his 29,000th Big Mac on December 8, 2016.[3] He also maintains that he has no known health issues and has not had reason to visit a doctor. At his doctor visit on April 26, 2011, his first since 1985, his cholesterol level was 156 mg/dl, which is below the average of 208 mg/dl.[9]

On May 4th, 2018, Gorske ate his 30,000th Big Mac.[10]
