Note the word overload. Moderation is key...cutting it out completely is nonsense and, given that damn near everything has sugar in it, practically impossible. Eat a sensible diet, don't go overboard on the sweets/sodas, exercise regularly and you will be ok.

Be a nutcase and cut it out completely...probably binge within a few months and land back at square 1.
The 'sweet' taste is caused by acidity. Sugary foods are acidic and body PH is very important. That's essentially the root cause of the inflammation. Cholesterol is basically an in line goo patch for weakened or cracked arteries. Thus it's actually saving your life until it clogs things up.

It should be noted that fruits are acidic, but the body converts the body to an alkaline. Our bodies are designed for fruits and nuts. People don't eat enough of either.
