Dennis Rosenlof has special sauce coursing through his veins.

"My first meal of the day is always at about 10:30, when they open up the Big Macs," Rosenlof, 64, told ABC News.

The fast-food giant McDonald's can keep its Egg McMuffins, Filets-O-Fish and all the rest of it. Rosenlof said he isn't interested.

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

And for Rosenlof, that's a Big Mac meal. The electrical appliance salesman and Vietnam vet is apparently in great health, despite being a self-confessed Big Mac-aholic with a 30-year habit.

"Mondays I always eat a Big Mac, two on Tuesdays, one on Wednesdays, two on Thursdays, one or two on Fridays, and two every Saturday," he explained.

That is 10 Big Macs a week. Rosenlof estimates he's scarfed down more than 12,000 of the special sauce-covered burgers in a lifetime.

He eats almost nothing else, except on the day of rest.

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

But health professionals recognize the vital nutrients he is not getting.

"What's missing from his diet it seems are vitamins, minerals, fiber," said ABC News Nutrition and Wellness Editor Dave Zinczenko. "The good news is he's keeping his calories in check, 700 fewer calories than the average American man brings in."

He just eats them all in Big Macs.

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

And here come the tidalwave of people who will tell us they haven't had a McDonalds in 180 years and all McDonalds meals literally taste of Dog Poop and all the Customers of McDonalds and Burger King etc have no taste. 

 

Last time I saw people talking similar, many people were saying they'd rather starve to death than eat a Big Mac etc if it was in the room with them. I'd be interested to take those people up on their claim.

A place in town puts the burger to shame, that being said, the Big mac is still a really good burger. I have it about twice a year.

I have no idea how people can stand eating the same thing every day, or even the same thing every week actually. It's common for people where I live to have a 'Sunday lunch' every sunday and I can't stand that every time! You have to mix it up a little. :p

I find them quite difficult to eat without making an awful BigMess as everything seems to be Teflon coated between the bread bits!

It's not bad if you have a voucher and short on time though - 12,000+ however is a few steps too far.

I have never eaten a Big Mac -- if anything, I only have cheeseburgers or chicken.
