It works out to a little less than 2 big macs a day, every day....for 45 years.

Oh well, it's an interesting story.

Seems like a colossal waste of taste bud potential, what with all the great food choices available, to limit oneself to a lifetime of big macs. I do remember Spurlock made the claim that they were/are addictive.

They have a high sodium content. Aside from that, there really isn't anything "unhealthy" about them. Ground beef, lettuce, bread, tomato and sauce.
People love to rant on about how bad McDonald's (why just McD's?) is for you, when really, it's not the sandwich itself that's bad, it's the fact that people eat them with a large side of fries and a huge soda, the latter two of which are VERY bad for you.

Question is how much ground beef does big mac have, is it 40,60, or 70%? It seems like maybe between 40-60%. Even when I make beef patties at home and use a combination of different meat cuts, some bread crumbs and seasoning my pattie tastes much more juicier and meaty than big mac. Their patties seems too firm to be made of beef, it's probably made of beef + soy to have this preform hockey puck look.

He has got to have sesame seed buns by now. 30,000 Big Macs is like $90,000 in Big Macs. He could have bought a house, or something else, like a John Lennon commemorative guitar. Good to know Big Macs are getting smaller. Last time I had one, it took about 30 seconds to eat it. Back in the day, it was probably a third larger and actually was enough for a meal.

John Lennon tried to look like him. People think it was the other way around, but NO, not so!

There is 100% ground beef in a Big Mac.

I was also a server at a nice sit down place and they broke a lot of food safety rules. Nothing crazy, but they weren't as strict.


Of course it will vary by location.
