A retired United States prison guard has eaten his 30,000th Big Mac, almost 46 years after eating his first.

On top of that, McDonald's United States of America headquarters said: "We are lovin' Don Gorske's enthusiasm for our iconic Big Mac sandwich and appreciate his ongoing loyalty".

Gorske told WFRV that he's eaten at least one Big Mac a day since then. Gorske says that the only reason that he has achieved this feat is - well - he just really likes burgers. He drove in a snowstorm to buy the sandwich but the restaurant was closed.

The popular fast-food chain promoted the Big Mac enthusiast's monumental ingestion, held at 3 p.m. under the "golden arches" and attended by McDonald's Fox Valley's franchise owner D.W. Rause.

When McDonald's debuted the Grand Mac and Big Mac Jr. sandwiches previous year, Gorske handed out bottles of Big Mac sauce to the lucky first customers at a McDonald's restaurant in Wauwatosa. He has an impressive collection of receipts, burger wrappers, and containers.

According to News.com.au, he has gone only eight days without consuming a Big Mac in the past 44 years.

He even has the day when McDonald's switched to shredded lettuce marked down: February 10, 1999. "You can not take Big Macs in front of the inmates", he said.

And his White House is right behind him - branding the special counsel's probe a "witch hunt" in an official news release. Looming in the background was a threat that Mueller could subpoena the president if talks broke down.

Don Gorske is tall and thin with a graying ponytail.

In 2003 Ellen DeGeneres requested Gorske's cholesterol be checked.

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.

Gorske has appeared in numerous television shows including Rachel Ray Show, Oprah, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Inside Edition, and Lopez Tonight.

If he continues at the pace he's been eating, Don predicts that he'll eat his 40,000th Big Mac in 2032, when he'll be 78.

Each Big Mac consists of two 1.6oz beef patties, three slices of bread, American cheese, lettuce, pickles, onions and a "special sauce" made up mainly of mayonnaise and ketchup.
