FOND DU LAC, Wis. – Chalk up another meaty milestone for Don Gorske (search). The Fond du Lac man downed his 20,000th Big Mac sandwich Monday, while surrounded by spectators at a local McDonald's restaurant.
He already had made the "Guinness World Records" (search) book for eating a record number of Big Macs before he hit number 19,000 in March 2003.
He has been eating the fast food sandwiches since 1972 at a rate of at least one a day, and said he has eaten a Big Mac (search) from every state in the union.
Still, the 6-foot Gorske has maintained his weight at about 170 pounds.
