I find this very interesting because most of our parents (if not all) go great lengths to entertain guests. They purchase new silverware, load up on snacks and food, etc. So when the guests arrive, abiding by this rule, I just think it’s kind of insulting. A paradox even. You see how elaborate they set the table, and the more-than-enough food spread out, and you think you’re being curteous to refuse. Do we expect them to finish the meal by themselves when we leave? 
Then there’s the infamous battle: Them: “Ah-Ah! Come to the the table, eat something, o!” You: “No, no. *stomach growls* I’m okay.” Them: “You don’t eat? You anorexic?” You: “No, I eat! I’m just not hungry right now, thanks.”  Then the niceness vanishes. Them: “Look. You’re in my house. I swear, if you don’t get up and eat this food I spent forever making you will be greated with a dirty slap to the face.” You:"…On second thought..I guess I could take you up on a bit of that fruit you got over there.."
