Most of those 15 things are variations on the same thing: Don't comment in a judgy way how much another person is eating or not eating, don't comment on their weight, and don't bore people by telling them about your own diet or eating choices.

The ones that aren't about food are just don't bring up politics or religion.

Fairly sound, if common-sense guidelines.
