Fond du Lac's Don Gorske eats milestone 30,000th Big Mac

Hold the bun and sauce ?
Then maybe Keto in the wild😂

Gorske says he’s eaten at least one Big Mac almost every day since May 17, 1972. He has kept most of the boxes or receipts or has made specific notes in calendars that he’s kept

Looks like he let Captain Kangaroo cut his hair… :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

He is local to me I have seen several interviews with him, I would be willing to bet he is keto although not intentionally. He only eats big macs, and not the fries. So he is probably getting 35-40g of carbs.

If he’s fine (like he says), imagine winning the genetic lottery and then spending it all on Big Macs. Don’t get me wrong, I like a Big Mac now and again (not since Keto but one day, again), but every day for 46 years - and that’s an average of 2 per day so he is not keto (16,800 days) - is a misuse of a god given carb tolerance :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: :hamburger:

Could be, I should find out what one he goes to and one see if I can talk to him.

IMO, two possible things are at work here. One, as was previously mentioned, he’s not eating a lot of other carbs. If so, the six bun portions are not enough to raise glycogen levels to the point of overcompensation, and since we don’t know what else he eats, he may also practice caloric restriction. Either way, glycogen levels are kept at a level that doesn’t cause overcompensation.

Two, he may possess the genetic trait that doesn’t allow leptin resistance to quickly rise. He may be one of those naturally lean people who don’t easily gain fat. If this is so, and he does follow an overall Carb based pattern, I’d expect him to still have some diet related health issues, despite not being overweight.

Fathead style. Don’t eat fries, don’t drink sugar coke, keep it <1️⃣0️⃣0️⃣ grams/day. Get 80% of the benefit without ever skimming ketosis.
