As I have stated a number of times artificial sweeteners were a problem for me that I didn’t recognize for a long time, and even when I did recognize they were an issue, I still had a bit of trouble staying away from them. At this point I only use stevia, and once in a great while I might have something with sucralose, but my objective is that faux sweeteners be consumed no more than once a week.
Happily, I found my cravings subsided greatly once I cut out 95% of artificial sweeteners, and if I find cravings coming back, I will eliminate. You gotta do what you gotta do!
Here is an excellent post from Dr. Attia on faux sweeteners:
