My Fitness Pal is a mobile app that allows you to track calorie and macronutrient (protein, carbs and fats) intake. The amount of calories you consume determines whether you will gain or lose weight. Where those calories are coming from (i.e. protein, carbs or fats), determines whether that weight gain or weight loss will come from fat, muscle or water weight.
