Would it be better if they suggested that eating fast food constantly was good?

McDonald's is proving proper advice and yet they get flak for it.

Guess what: if you eat nothing but carrots, you have an unhealthy diet. If you eat nothing but yogurt, you have an unhealthy diet.

True, but they're also suggesting that their employees eat healthier options, like subs, which McDonald's doesn't offer. And if you work for a franchise that gives you a free or discounted meal during your shift, you'd be hard pressed to find something healthy on McDonald's menu. I doubt most employees can afford to go elsewhere for healthy options.

whatshisname: Their original menu was never meant to be eaten regularly. It was a treat for a Friday night out with the kids.


Plus most of the portions where about 30 percent smaller. And the fries where fried in beef tallow oil and a small portion would fill you up.

I'll still go once a month and get a regular cheese burger and ice water when I'm too busy for a sit down lunch....any more and I don't really feel well for the rest of the day.

Funny how the site tells its serfs to eat "at places...", as if the peons actually earn enough money to eat out. Way to be in touch with the lives of your servant caste.

feckingmorons: If they listed all of the nutrition information for each item they serve on the website? Well they do that.

I must assume that non-exempt part time employees at McDonalds who take time off because they have had a huge MI from eating fast food for 3 (or 7 or 8) meals a day don't actually cost the company more money, they simply don't get paid while they recuperate.

I bet you a Big Mac your retirement funds hold a position in McDonald's. so before you go all 'big food' you might want to check. If they don't you have crappy funds.


Hang on mate, you're leaping and bounding to conclusions here, along with ad hominem

I"m simply saying it is rather odd that McD recommends their own employees not to eat their stuff as part of their daily on their internal employee only website and not on the public website. This is a fact, No?

I think it's more about suggesting that to their EMPLOYEES as a suggestion about how to be healthier employees with less days off from work and less health care costs to the corporation....and not their customers.

If they did their on their consumer web page instead of a employee only website it would be a different story.


The advice wouldn't be entirely out of place even on their consumer facing site.  It doesn't say not to eat at McDonalds, or not to eat fast food at all, it just says not to make fast food a staple of your diet.

There's nothing wrong with unhealthy food in moderation.

I think McDonalds is doing a pretty good job of trying change with the times. Their original menu was never meant to be eaten regularly. It was a treat for a Friday night out with the kids.

Lest anyone forget, McD's does have salads, chicken and fish items on their menu.
Can't knock them for telling the truth.
But nobody tells it like "The Heart Attack Grill" in Las Vegas.
They tell you flat out that eating their food is bad for you.

The only mcdonalds I have regularly visited (worked in the same mall, mostly just had coffee) most if the employees looked like they ate there every day. Bloated and barely contained by their uniforms, a cruel parody of their former selves. There was a girl who started working there, high school age looked like. She was not half bad looking, and all I could think whenever I saw her there was that she should run away as fast as she could or she would turn slowly into the horrorshow coworkers all around her.

McDonalds never claimed that their food was good for you. They just claim that individuals should be responsible for the shiat they stuff in their face, not the restaurants that serve said shiat.

Kinda pointless. If you DON'T realize that McDonalds is unhealthy, I question your ability to operate a computer in the first place.

Pocket Ninja: kronicfeld: Guess what: if you eat nothing but carrots, you have an unhealthy diet. If you eat nothing but yogurt, you have an unhealthy diet.

What I take from this is that the healthy diet spectrum is a finite line that ranges from carrots to yogurt, and that if I combine the two I am effectively creating the most comprehensive diet known to man,


Based on the way you post sometimes, I figured all you ate was yogurt and carrots. Blended with fine tequila.

I didn't recall McDonald's ever saying that their food WAS healthy.  They are just trying to appease the "I don't know what to put into my mouth unless the government tells me, and that's how it should be" crowd.  Bravo, I guess.

I eat McDonald's side salad and a grilled chicken sandwich frequently. Their regular chicken salad occasionally too. All the food at McDonalds is not bad, in fact none of the food at McDonalds is bad when part of a balanced diet. If you have the quarter pounder combo for lunch don't have deep fried salted twinkies for dinner.

BK has the best side salad, they have real cheese not carrots shredded to look like cheese to get you all excited about cheese and then get let down because it is a vegetable.

Up in western NY in winter McDonalds offers soup which is good too.
