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."

Now, I’m author of the expose, Sugar Shock (Berkley Books, 2006) and Beyond Sugar Shock (Hay House, 2012), which gives you a simple, proven plan to kick sweets. My next book, Crush Your Crazy Cravings™ -- which I'm now completing -- will give you easy, tested tools to squash your cravings for sugar, salt and fatty foods. I’m also a motivational speaker, certified life coach, certified health coach, media guest, and Gab with the Gurus host. I'm also organizer for the upcoming Sugar World Summit.
