Are stuffed olives bad for your heart ?

The reason I ask, is my friend has just had a heart bypass, and when he left hospital, the dietian gave my friend a list of what he could and couldn't eat. Olives were at the top of the 'could not' list. When my friend asked why, he was told that olives were chock-full of calories. Is this true?.
