Wis. Man Remains Healthy Despite Big Mac Habit

Ad Feedback

A Wisconsin man's doctors are baffled by his healthy medical condition after he recently ate his 25,000th Big Mac, a hamburger featured on the menu of McDonald's restaurants.

"Pretty close to 90 percent of my diet is probably just the Big Macs," said Don Gorske.

It's a feat that many doctors do not recommend and yet, the Big Mac fan's medical statistics were reported to be astoundingly good considering his high fat diet.

Gorske has low cholesterol despite eating a burger a day and doing very little exercise. His doctors say his condition is very rare and is all about genetics.

"One Big Mac a day is not negatively impacting his numbers," said Dr. Darrell Gay, Gorske's physician.

"They haven't killed you?," one reporter asked Gorske.

"No, not even close. I'm doing really good health wise," he replied.

"We have to keep in mind this is the exception to the rule," explained Dr. Lori Mosca, director of preventative cardiology at NewYork - Presbyterian Hospital. "25,000 and counting, never knowing if his next could be his last."

"I feel great. I never get sick," Gorske said.

One Big Mac has 540 calories and 29 grams of fat -- the equivalent of an entire large cheese pizza.
