Olive oil is not a health food any more so than sugar is. People are shocked to here this but when you compare the actual numbers, oil is worse in many categories than sugar, and the one or two it wins on, are mostly irrelevant.

And, as you are finding out, it is the most calorie dense food on the planet and low in overall nutrient density. And olive oil is 12-14% saturated fat. The more olive oil you add to your diet, the lower the overall nutrient density, the greater the calorie density, and the more saturated fat you add.
