when i look at all your posted data thus far, really looks like WW or AS is still a very do-able and sensible plan. your dietary changes are good for your general health regardless of any help to PC, wish i could make that drastic a diet change.
part of the plan of course with WW is to have biopsies on some agreed upon schedule. the fact that you only had 1 positive core out of 16, and that being only 3 % gleason 6 is great at face value. would normaly be considered a real low grade case of pc.
there is however, the chance over time that the cancer grows, or the single biopsy you had, even though 16 core, missed more of the cancer. your low psa number however, adds another odd dimension to your case.
if i were you, just my opinion, would still do the psa every 3 months, and a new biopsy at the one year mark, just to be on the safe side.
