However, as long as I've known you, you've watched and been aware of your diet more than anyone I know. At least that's the impression I've gotten over the years. There was nothing dire found in your examination as indicated that requires a drastic life style change. From my point of view, you have more serious concerns to worry about than something that probably most older people have.
Using olive oil instead of butter in cooking is no biggie and with a little added flavoring added, might be even better. I'm using the olive oil left in the bottle after a friend bottled some hot peppers w/spices in it. The peppers are gone but the olive oil has been left with a delicious flavor that perks up anything I use it with.
I don't think an occasional partaking of the forbidden "fruits" is going to be disastrous so don't drive yourself nuts in trying to adhere.
