Man Eats 25,000 Big Mac's

Well, not at the same time, but a 58 Wisconsin resident recently ate his 25,000th Big Mac over a span of 39 years.

The most amazing part is that he is surprisingly not 500 pounds and dead. While I love Big Mac's as much as the next person, eating 25,000 of them seems like the stupidest idea in the world and I'm amazed he has no health problems as a result. Sometimes he would eat 9 a day. 9 A DAY!!!!!! Who thought that was a good idea.

OK, let's break it down:

Each Big Mac contains 540 calories, 29 grams of fat, 24 grams of sugar and 1020 milligrams of salt.

So if we do the math:

That's 13,500,000 calories. That's right 13.5 MILLION CALORIES!!! Or the equivalent of 14.8 YEARS worth of calories if your daily intake is 2,500 calories.

As for fat, that's 725,000 grams of fat or 1598 pounds or 3/4 of a TONS!!! I know elevators that would buckle under the weight of the fat alone!

600,000 grams of sugar, which is over 1,322 pounds of sugar or 34 pounds of sugar a year. The average American consumes almost 40 pounds of sugar a year and this guy almost hit that target on Big Mac's alone!

25,500,000 milligrams of salt equals out to just over 56 pounds, that's a lot of salt.

No matter how you break it down, this guy should be long dead, but somehow keeps on going. Take that Morgan Spurlock!

  1. The guy in this story was in the movie Super Size Me. His body must just be used to the awesome taste of Big Macs. Mcdolands should give him free Big Macs for life for this.
