Dennis Rosenlof, 64, admits he is healthy even though he is a self-confessed "Mac-aholic" with a 30 year habit.
“My first meal of the day is always at about 10:30, when they open up the Big Macs."
The electrical appliance salesman and Vietnam vet says he is not interested in McDonald's breakfast foods. In fact, he says McDonald's can keep its Egg McMuffins, Filets-O-Fish and all the rest of it.
This is Rosenlof's menu for the week with no exception:
- Mondays: one Big Mac
- Tuesdays: two Big Macs
- Wednesdays: one Big Mac
- Thursdays: two Big Macs
- Friday: either one or two Big Macs
- Saturdays: two Big Macs
- Sundays: He eats whatever his wife cooks for the family.
That's a total of 10 Big Macs a week. Since he has been eating them for 30 years, that's estimated to be about 12,000 Big Macs made up of two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun.
But health professionals recognize the vital nutrients Rosenlof is not getting.
ABC News Nutrition and Wellness Editor Dave Zinczenko says, “What’s missing from his diet it seems are vitamins, minerals, fiber. The good news is he’s keeping his calories in check, 700 fewer calories than the average American man brings in.”
Rosenlof says he just loves Big Macs.
