- Big Macs are good, but would you want to eat them everyday of your life?
Most people love to go out to eat, and they have their favorites. Maybe it’s the lobster from Red Lobster or the burritos from Chipotle.
For others, it’s a love of fast food. McDonald’s has all they ever want. This guy is one of those fast food lovers, but he’s out for something specific. He loves Big Macs. So much so, he considers himself a Big Mac enthusiast.
Dan Groske is from Fond du Lac, WI and he is known for being the guy that’s eaten the most Big Macs. He claims that Bic Macs make up 90-95% of his solid food intake.
Groske loves McDonald’s Big Macs so much that he holds the Guinness World Record for eating the most of them. He has held this record since 2016. “I love the patties, I love the sauce, I can’t get enough of it,” said Groske.
He says that he loves hamburgers, and that’s why he’s eaten so many. According to him, he’s eaten at least one Big Mac per day since May 17th, 1972.
Groske doesn’t really love all burgers though. He tells the story of eating a Whopper, one in his whole life, because of a dare from friends. The money he won eating the Whopper was then spent on Big Macs.
It all started when he got his first car. He drove to his local McDonald’s where he discovered the Big Mac and tried it for the first time. He had three for lunch that day alone. He returned twice that day and ate a total of nine Big Macs.
Guinness World Records took notice when Groske tallied 28,788 of these double-patty sandwiches eaten. Now, his tally is over 30,000.
Groske was a part of the documentary, Super Size Me and Don Groske: Mac Daddy. He also wrote a book titled, 22,477 Big Macs, which came out in 2008.
Lucky for him, Groske’s blood pressure and cholesterol remain at normal readings, even with his bad habit. You only live once, right? This guy knows it and he intends to spend his life eating his favorite food, Big Macs.
