Utah man has eaten 12,000 Big Macs over 30 years

If you are what you eat, this guy is greasy, to say the least.

A salesman in Salt Lake City, Utah, says he has eaten at least 12,000 Big Mac meals, 930 calories each, in the past 30 years.

Dennis Rosinlof, 64, eats at least one Big Mac meal a day -- often two. The exceptions are Sundays,  when his wife cooks at home. The Big Mac meals include fries. 

Rosinlof says he always stays under 2,000 calories a day, and at about 6 feet tall, his weight is 165 lbs., which is considered normal.
Why does Rosinlof eat this way? Because he loves the food.

"I don't think I'm addicted to Big Macs, but my body understands what's coming, when it's coming and knows what it has to make to get to get rid of it."

Here's what he is putting in his body once or twice a day:

  • Big Mac: 490 kcal, 24g fat, 2.1g salt
  • Portion of medium fries: 330 kcal, 16g fat, 0.6g salt
