Wisconsin man celebrates eating McDonald's Big Mac every day for 50 years

FOND DU LAC, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A Wisconsin man is in the record books for his love of McDonald's. You could say he's been "lovin' it" for half of a century. 

Don Gorske has eaten a Big Mac nearly every day for the past 50 years. He had his first Big Mac back on May 17, 1972. 

Gorske says there have only been eight days in five decades when he hasn't had a Big Mac. 

"I got a comic of somebody saying I was gonna die of a heart attack within 15,000 Big Macs. Heck, now I'm over 30,000. I'm still alive. It's not really the food you eat, it's your lifestyle. If you're lazy, I probably would have gained a lot of weight. But because I'm so active, I burn off my only calories," said Gorske. 

After he ate his 30,000th in 2018, Guinness recorded him as the first person to hold a Big Mac consumption record. Last December, he reached 32,672.
