As dlife.com tells you, "To help you visualize a rough idea of what amounts to a 50 gram portion, here are some examples: 10 grapes, 1/3 of a medium sized peach, 1/2/ cup chopped celery, or 2 extra long spears of asparagus."

I'm a former sugar-addicted journalist, who reluctantly quit sugar on doctor's orders in 1998. When all 44 of my crippling ailments vanished, I began interviewing hundreds of experts worldwide so I could give you the sour scoop about sweets. Fast forward 17 years, and I'm now author of Sugar Shock (Berkley Books, 2006) and Beyond Sugar Shock (Hay House, 2012). The latter gives you a simple, proven plan to easily squash your sugar habit. I'm also a motivational speaker, a certified life coach, a certified health coach, frequent media guest, and Gab with the Gurus host. I'm now planning the first first Sugar World Summit and I'm finishing writing my next book, Crush Your Crazy Cravings™, which will help you easily escape your must-have-junk-food moments.
