In brief: Balanced diet
A diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low in saturated fats is generally a good choice.
You will need to limit calories to avoid gaining weight. Do not use tobacco and avoid alcohol. Diet needs to be tailored to an individual and you may wish to consult a nutritionist.

In brief: In general . . .
It is hard to be real precise or specific, because everyone is unique and our knowledge is not as precise and consistent as we would like in this area.
Nevertheless, there is a fair amount of evidence that in general a healthy diet consists of lots of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, healthy (mostly plant) oils, lean if any meats (or use other protein sources), and good calorie balance.
