Man eats 25,000 burgers, says more to come!

Don Gorske, a retired prison guard, was honoured after reaching the milestone with a ceremony at a McDonald's in his hometown of Fond du Lac, Daily Mail reported.

"I plan on eating the Big Mac until I die. I have no intention of changing. It's still my favourite food. Nothing has changed in 39 years. I look forward to it every day," he said.

His obsession with the burger started in 1972, when he bought three Big Mac burgers to celebrate the purchase of a new car. He was hooked, and went back to McDonald's twice more that day, eating nine before they closed.

He's only gone eight days since without a Big Mac, the Mail said.

"I probably have an obsessive-compulsive disorder. I have kept all the Big Mac boxes and receipts over the years and also noted down my purchases in calendars," said the prison guard.

Incredibly for all the burger eating, Gorske is slim and his cholesterol is just fine.

In 2008, Guinness verified that Gorske has consumed the most Big Mac burgers ever, at the time, just 23,000.

If he lives until the age of 86 he would have eaten around 40,000 Big Mac burgers.

"I think 25,000 is a pretty awesome number, I will never live long enough to eat 50,000," the Mail quoted him as saying.
