Yes, olive oil (cold pressed is best) is a good oil and is heart healthy.  Another good one is canola oil.  Canola oil is best used for frying at high heats, in baking or when you don't want to fruity flavor of olive oil in your food.

You should also reduce the animal fats in your diet, increase the omega 3's (fish, flax seed), add other good fats like avacodo, walnuts, almonds.  Eat lots of vegetables and complex carbohydrates (brown rice, whole wheat/grains, oats, flax).
