A 64-year-old McDonald's enthusiast has celebrated eating his 30,000th Big Mac.

Gorske, from Fond du Lac in Wisconsin, US, has a place in the Guinness Book of Records for the most Big Macs consumed and claims the burgers make up 90-95% of his overall food intake.

This record means that he has eaten at least one Big Mac per day since 1972. The first time, he drove to McDonald's during a snowstorm and discovered it was closed.

The food chain promoted the Big Mac fan's record-breaking ingestion, which happened under the "golden arches" on Military Road at 3 p.m. McDonald's Fox Valley's franchise owner D.W. Rause was there for the event. He keeps tracks of receipts, containers, and sandwich wrappers.

According to News.com.au, he has gone only eight days without consuming a Big Mac in the past 44 years. He keeps almost everything, although he lost about 7,000 items when a tornado ripped the roof off his house.

Nick Bohr, a reporter for WISN, an ABC affiliate in Milwaukee, documented Gorske's 30,000th Big Mac. 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.

Tall and lanky, with a graying ponytail and friendly demeanor, Gorske has obsessive compulsive disorder and a meticulous memory, which lends to his Big Mac habit and his penchant for details. "You can not take Big Macs in front of the inmates", he said. In 2003, Ellen DeGeneres asked him to get his cholesterol checked, and it was 140.

As for his health, Don poo-poos the naysayers and health brigade, saying that at his last medical check-up, he had low cholesterol and "perfect" blood pressure. He was featured in the movie "Supersize Me".

He spoke to the press before his historic meal and reminisced about the time he first crossed the McDonald's threshold for a Big Mac.
