    McDonalds employee resources website is giving out even more odd advice for workers. This time, it's about the industry it helped make ubiquitous—fast food.

    "Fast foods are quick, reasonably priced, and readily available alternatives to home cooking. 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," reads one post on the site, which includes a picture of a hamburger and fries, two items that the fast-food giant specializes in selling.

    Another post labels a meal with a cheeseburger and fries as the "unhealthy choice" and one with a submarine sandwich and salad as the "healthier choice," noting that it's more of a challenge to eat healthy when visiting a fast-food place.

    A separate post writes "it is hard to eat a healthy diet when you eat at fast-food restaurants often," adding that large portions make it easy to overeat.

    The site also advises people to limit how many fries they eat. :jj:

    What is “the cheapest, most nutritious and bountiful food that has ever existed in human history” Hint: It has 390 calories. It contains 23g, or half a daily serving, of protein, plus 7% of daily fiber, 20% of daily calcium and so on.





    Also, you can get it in 14,000 locations in the US and it usually costs $1. Presenting one of the unsung wonders of modern life, the McDonald’s McDouble cheeseburger.

    The problem with fast food isn't that pre-made food is high on calories, pre-packaged food is packed with preservatives or that processed food has been taken apart and put back together. the problem with fast food is bad science.

    What? Bad science? Wtf?

    Yes.

    Bad science. The worst kind, actually. I can forgive someone just simply arriving at the wrong conclusion. I cannot forgive someone that designs (yes, designs) foods for the sole purpose of greed. The foods that McDonald's and their ilk peddle are knowingly introduced to ingredients like pink slime. An ammonia-drenched bone meal with a tiny meat component. It's loaded with salt because salt makes you drink more. The drinks are engineered to not satisfy your thirst. Your meals are engineered to not satisfy your hunger.

    they care about money. The only reason they bothered to warn their workers is so they don't lose the people that peddle their products. Btw, if this is in response to the recent food workers strike, this is pathetic. That's it? That's all they could come up with?

    It was a well reasoned opinion piece in The Post.

    Forget the anti-McDonald's propaganda and what's in the meat for a second and think of anything that's more nutritious than a Big Mac or a Whopper. All four food groups in one tasty burger can't be a bad thing.

    Maybe if they offered proper portions of almonds the elitist would get off their high horse...

    Only Morgan Spurlock believes that anyone would eat there for every meal.

    Say, it's quite a coincidence that you and FFF are never on this board at the same time...

    Really, who cares?

    If Baskin Robbins sent out a recommendation to their employees to not eat their ice cream every day because they will gain weight, or a bar chain recommending that drinking gallons of beer and consuming hard liquor isn't good for you either. Should we be shocked? :rolleye:

    Well, the piece contains well reasoned facts to support the argument.

    In case you haven't noticed, anything other than vegetables is "shit food" these days.
