Utah Man Says He's Eaten More Than 12,000 Big Mac Sandwiches

Posted: Updated:

Dennis Rosenlof has special sauce coursing through his veins.

"My first meal of the day is always about 10:30, when they open up the Big Macs," said Rosenlof.

You can keep your Egg McMuffins, your Filets-o-Fish and all the rest of it.
Rosenlof ain't interested.

"I enjoy what I eat. It tastes good, so I order the same thing every day."

And that's a Big Mac Meal. This electrical appliance salesman, and Vietnam
vet, apparently in great health, is a self-confessed Big Mac-aholic with a
30-year habit.

"Monday's I always eat a Big Mac, two on Tuesdays, one on Wednesdays, two on Thursdays, one or two on Fridays, and two every Saturday," said Rosenlof.

10 a week. He estimate he's scarfed down more than 12,000 in a lifetime. He
eats almost nothing else. Except on the day of rest

"Sunday my wife cooks meals and eat a family dinner, so it works out great," said Rosenlof.

"What's missing from his diet it seems are vitamins, minerals, fiber," says ABC News Nutrition & Wellness Editor Dave Zinczenko. "The good news is he's keeping his calories in check, seven hundred fewer calories than the average American man brings in."

He just eats them all on Big Macs. "It has all the major food groups in it. I'm not sure what's in the special sauce but you put them all together and it makes a fantastic
sandwich," said Rosenlof.

And the most surprising thing of all, Rosenlof, an active 64 year old,
claims his cholesterol is totally respectable and a BMI that is alarmingly
average thanks to the daily Big Mac diet.
