He loves it.

A Wisconsin man celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Big Mac’s destruction almost every day by landing a well-deserved spot on the Guinness World Records.

Big Mac lover Donald Gorske, 68, from Fond du Lac, Wis., made a routine stop at his local McDonald’s on Tuesday, where he celebrated five decades of everyday burger enjoyment.

It seemed only fitting that Gorske had a Big Mac at the same McDonald’s he first ate the iconic burger in 1972.

“At that point I said ‘I’m probably going to eat this for the rest of my life,'” he told Guinness World Records.

Gorske broke the record for the most Big Mac burgers eaten in a lifetime in 1999 after gobbling down 15,490. Guinness last year updated the total to 32,340.

In 2004, Gorske was featured in the documentary “Super Size Me” for his efforts to eat hamburgers. In the docu-film, he said he always ordered a cup of Coca-Cola with his Big Mac and rarely ate fries.

To make the moment as special as possible, the local McDonald’s in Gorske displayed a sign outside the restaurant, which read: “Congratulations Don on 50 years of Mac”.

His portrait even hangs on the wall inside the restaurant he visits religiously.

“I’m probably going to eat Big Macs every day for the rest of my life,” Gorske told the outlet.

Throughout his half-century love affair with Bic Macs, Gorske has only missed eight days. To make up for lost time, he sometimes eats two burgers a day.

“When I like something, I stick with it all the time,” he added.

Since then, he has managed to double the record and more.

As proof of his unprecedented success, Gorske saves every carton of burgers and individual receipts every time he locks lips with the buns.

“I will probably eat Big Macs every day for the rest of my life.”

Going one step further, the burger demon boasts of a display case where it proudly displays decades-old McDonald’s burger cartons.

The Post has contacted McDonald’s for comment.
