I don't think there is a single diet that suits everybody, people have different needs and tolerances.
But generally speaking, eating a variety of vegetables seems to be good for most, together with a little animal produce and/or seafood. And avoiding highly processed food.
Why do you ask?

in general, it is not a good idea to mix refined carbs with fats. so it is permissible to eat carbs within limits but NEVER mix fat with them as the combo [especially when cooked] creates these acronymic things called AGEs [Advanced Glycation End-products] which contribute to systemic inflammation and premature aging. if you are going to have fat in your diet, #1 avoid trans-fats/hydrogenated anything, and #2 combine it with proteins, as in nature fats and proteins tend to be linked. healthy fats also aid digestion/nutritional assimilation of certain vitamins when accompanying some veggies [NOT potatoes]. also, as a general rule, "desert dessert" IOW don't combine sugary things with anything else at mealtimes, which is an extension of the recommendation against mixing carbs with anything else. separate sets of digestive enzymes [for carbs] will mix with those in charge of breaking down proteins/fats which in worst cases leads to incomplete digestion, with some things putrefying in the gut undigested which in the short term leads to stinky elimination/farting, and over a long time can lead to nasty things like the big C.

I've heard Japanese and Mediterranean diets are supposed to be healthy.

my late mother, japanese, lived to 85 and would have lived longer had MDS not cut her down. her friend's mother [also japanese] lived into her 90s, dementia cut her down. she ate a somewhat americanized diet [hybrid of japanese and SAD] so i am guessing her genes were somewhat protective.

Anything balanced with not too much sugar, fat, and salt. You can eat plant-based if you’d like, but you don’t have to.
