The fast-food behemoth posted the jaw-dropping tip on its Web site for employees, warning that the very same burgers and fries they sling for their legions of customers are hazardous to their health.

An image posted on the site labels a McDonald's-like meal of hamburger, fries, and a coke as an "unhealthy choice," and warns employees against consuming such foods, which are "almost always high in calories, fat, sugar, and salt"

This image is on the McDonald's employee resource site, with the caption:

"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."

"It is hard to eat a healthy diet when you eat at fast-food restaurants often," the site goes on to say

"Many foods are cooked with a lot of fat, even if they are not trans fats. Many fast-food restaurants do not offer any lower-fat foods. Large portions also make it easy to overeat. And most fast food restaurants do not offer many fresh fruits and vegetables."

In another post, a picture of French fries and a hamburger resembling a Big Mac is labeled an "unhealthy choice."

"Although not impossible, it is more of a challenge to eat healthy when going to a fast food place," the post reads. "In general, avoiding items that are deep fried are your best bet. Healthier choices include sandwiches that can be loaded with vegetables. Limit the extras such as cheese, bacon, and mayonnaise."

So what can employees do to eat healthier? For one thing — stay away from McDonald's

"In general," the site suggests, "eat at places that offer a variety of salads, soups, and vegetables."
