Personally, I discovered that Splenda gives me headaches, so while I enjoy the taste, I had to stop using it. However, I do enjoy stevia sweeteners, including Truvia, for all it's processed. I have no trouble with that, no additional cravings, and given that I WILL have sweetener in my tea, it might as well be something not artificial that's zero calories. I'm using stevia in the raw right now, as it's got the fewest ingredients of the ones I have available tome at my grocery store.
Becky Hand has stated that artificial sweeteners are safe, and approved for use, as long as you don't abuse it. 1.5 teaspoons a day is nowhere near overuse, so you're fine. ;)
Your mileage may vary, and while there's a lot of dire talk about artificial sweeteners these days, there's really not a wealth of scientific evidence to support it, so I enjoy mine guilt free. :)
