Not sure if this has been posted yet. Please delete if so.


Postings on McDonalds’ employee resources site are warning workers to avoid eating too much fast food – including the kind of stuff served at the golden arches.

"Fast foods are quick, reasonably priced, and readily available alternatives to home cooking,” one post on the site says, according to CNBC. “While convenient and economical for a busy lifestyle, fast foods are typically high in calories, fat, saturated fat, sugar, and salt and may put people at risk for becoming overweight."

The posts, which appear to be designed by a third party vendor, are located in the site’s ‘Health Encyclopedia’ section.

One posting bashes a meal of a burger, fries and soda – McDonald’s staples – as an “unhealthy choice.”

So what?

Does a gun manufacturer have to advise its staff not to look down the barrel of loaded weapons?

[edit] But it probably still does to cover its ass from law suits.... stupid people do stupid things then sue.

Oh the horror.. Why are so many people attacking McDonald these days. Its not their fault so many adults decided to make it a career choice in flipping burgers. I would have to say its encouraging for mcdonalds to instruct their employee staff not to eat fast food all the time, because if they are working at mcdonalds then chances are they definitely need some type of guidance.

The masses should take personal responsibility instead of blaming their own fat problems on everyone else. Mcdonalds would not market something that does not sell. Its not mcdonalds that makes you a failure or fat its the crap you shove in your mouth and the inadequate goals you have set for yourself.

Yes McDonald's is a fast food chain and what they are stating is the truth, fast food can be bad for you if that is all you eat.

As with everything in life, a little of what you fancy is okay, but if you add enough sugar to anything it eventually becomes sugar.

I guess it's just good advice and after all they don't want their staff going off sick too often.

McD's is a TREAT and should be thought of that way.

Not as one of the food groups.

If someone worked at a Dairy Queen, would it be so terrible to mention to employees that eating ice cream everyday might not be the best?

The people who work at McDonalds don't have a lot of money and so they probably eat on the job ... get a 'free meal' ... when they can.** The corporation is telling them not to. It would save the company money not having employees on minimum wage eat the food they are cooking. But I doubt anyone who works for McDonalds will listen.


I say that they probably eat the food while working because, when I was a teenager, I worked a while at a Roy Rogers and we would eat the food so we could have a free meal. It wasn't allowed, but we did it anyways. We made nearly zippo for money and the food was sitting there to be tossed out anyways. It saved us $$ and the food didn't get wasted. We figured win/win.

I read this and went to buy a quarter pound, they removed the recommendation from their webpage after the news came out a few days ago

The quarter pound was good

I don't eat any fast food at all. I can eat a bowl of super hot chilly and I am fine. Any time I ate McDonald's when my daughter was young. I would have a case of the runs a hour later.
My daughter now 18 now is like refuses to eat any fast food.
consider this their burgers are only %15 beef

Everyone knows McDonalds is unhealthy, they know it's unhealthy, they don't try and sell it as healthy, is it really that bad that they advise their employees to not eat unhealthy food every single day?

Whilst I am most certainly not any kind of MaccyD's fan boy, I call it 'toy food' and they treat their staff like dirt, we can't knock them for wanting their staff to at least be healthy?

Maybe I'm missing the point?

we can't have it both ways. Either McDonald's is poison, or its not. If it is, then kudo's to McDonalds for advising its staff against eating poison. If it isn't, then tsk, tsk to McDonalds for not paying its staff well enough to afford the product they are serving.

Sorry for the short comment in my op.

Imagine that you are a vegetable producer (for exemple) and you use some farming methodes that make it beautiful and cheap but are not healthy to the people. So you tell "your" people they shouldn`t eat these vegetables but continue to sell it to the general public without saying anything about it. I don`t think this is an honest attitude, do you ?

You could tell everyone that although these are cheap, nice and can be tasty, it can still not be good to their heallth if they don`t consume it moderately and then it was up to them eat it or not, but I`d rather not sell it al all, but of course this is only my opinion and I don´t claim to be the owner of rightness and truth

There are such things as food standards agency and to be honest if McDonald's really was poisonous they wouldn't allow them to sell it, honestly.

Personally, the service I have received from this establishment was enough to put me off them forever, but I have never been ill as a consequence of eating one thing from there.

A good balanced diet with the occasional fast food treat is fine. Just don't live off a diet of fast food, that will poison the body and make you ill. A Mediterranean diet is beneficial, with lots of veg, particularly garlic, fish, fruit and a small amount of red meat is the way to go imo, others will disagree, but it works for me.
