The company recommended "breaking food into pieces" to feel more full on less food, singing away stress and taking two vacations a year to lower the risk of heart attack, as well as " selling some of your unwanted possessions on eBay or Craigslist could bring in some quick cash."
The recommendations were publicized Tuesday by the group Low Pay Is Not OK, which advocates higher wages for fast-food workers, but McDonald's claims the advice was taken out of context.
"This is an attempt by an outside organization to undermine a
well-intended employee assistance resource website by taking
isolated portions out of context," the company said in a statement,

I will never set foot into a McDonalds again as long as I live and this is a sentiment that I am hearing over and over again from everyone I speak to. First of all you greedy SOB's, I don't care how small you cut up your food, six ounces of food doesn't fill you up more just because you cut it into smaller pieces. That is one of the most absurd statements I have ever heard, but we have to consider the source; this is the Grinch that is attempting to steal Christmas from their employees and I doubt that if this ever hits the MSM -- McDonalds business will drop like a piece of lead -- exactly as it should. When they finished their assault on their own employees by suggesting that they sell their Christmas presents for cash I saw red and had to quit reading for over an hour. This company needs to be put out of business -- and fast. They, like Wal-Mart, are a blight on the United States. Why did I mention Wal-Mart? Read this:
Wal-Mart asks employees to donate canned goods to workers who don't have enough to eat
By Travis Gettys, Monday, November 18, 2013 13:28 EST
Employees at an Ohio Wal-Mart store are being asked to donate canned goods to help out co-workers who don't have enough to eat at the holidays.
"Please Donate Food Items Here, so Associates in Need Can Enjoy Thanksgiving Dinner," reads a sign near bins tucked away in an employees-only area at the Canton store.
Wal-Mart employees in Cincinnati and Dayton were scheduled to strike Monday to demand higher wages for cashiers, stock clerks and other positions at the retailing giant, which was the target of a blistering congressional report that found many employees were paid so little that they were pushed onto public assistance.
A Wal-Mart spokesman said the food drive, which was photographed and shared on social media, was proof that employees care about each other.
"It is for associates who have had some hardships come up," said company spokesman Kory Lundberg. "Maybe their spouse lost a job. MUCH MORE
Finally, as I finish this piece that illustrates how corrupt and anti-American the GOP Congress and their leadership are, a story from Op-Ed News caught my eye, and after I read that, it took the air out of me as I marveled how mean and petty some people are to those who do not share their good fortune. This was so disgusting that I thought I would lose my dinner:
Hawaii lawmaker wages campaign against the homeless and their belongings with sledgehammer
In the past two weeks residents in Hawaii noticed what appeared to be a crazed individual carrying a sledgehammer through the streets of Honolulu, a state lawmaker looking to rid the city of homeless people by targeting their belongings.
State Representative Tom Brower (D) is currently dedicated to dealing out his own personal brand of "justice" by seeking out homeless people and destroying their possessions. Brower estimates that he has used the sledgehammer to smash at least 30 shopping carts, rendering them useless by bashing in the front wheels.
"I got tired of telling people I'm trying to pass laws. I want to do something practical that will really clean up the streets," he told Hawaii News Now. "I find abandoned junk, specifically shopping carts, and I remove them."
Brower admitted he was "disgusted" with homeless people during an interview with the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, adding that he has not taken a homeless person's cart directly from them but that is a possibility in the future.
