A few snippets: Don Gorske sometimes cannot taste the Big Macs he eats every day.But he keeps eating and today he expects to hit another Big Mac Milestone: Gorske plans to consume his 25,000th Big Mac. Gorske, 57, says that since birth his taste buds have fluctuated in sensitivity, possibly worsening when he worked inside tanks at a factory. However, not knowing if he’ll taste the Big Macs has not dampened his love for the McDonald’s staple. He began eating the high-calorie special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun burgers on May 17 in 1972. Gorske has structured his eating habits so he will devour his 25,000th Big Mac at about 3 p.m. today inside the McDonald’s at 699 S. Military Ave. — exactly 39 years since he drove his father’s Dodge Polara to the original McDonald’s on Military Avenue and fell in love with the sandwich. Gorske now purchases six Big Macs on Monday and eight on Thursday. He has a spare in his freezer in case of an emergency and a special one frozen inside a container. This portion may have been poorly written, but it leaves one to believe that he hasn't had any significant health problems in the past 25 years. In 1985, Gorske went to the doctor for a physical so he could work in the prison. On April 26 this year, he finally returned to the doctor and found out he is in good health with a cholesterol level at 156 mg/dL. Average good cholesterol rating for men age 50 and older is 208 mg/dL. Gorske estimated he has consumed well over 200,000 Coca-Colas with his Big Macs.
