This may be due to oversupplementation--that can be dangerous, in the long run. I would restrict multivitamins to just once a week, and dust using a plain calcium supplement with D3 twice a week. Use plain calcium without D3 the rest of the time.
Over-supplementing can be just as unhealthy as under-supplementing.
At 6 months old, I don't see a reason to reduce food...they're only eating every other day, yes? The usual schedule is food once per day, as much as they can eat in 15 minutes. Feeding every other day, I would expect them to eat a lot more. If she's eating tons, perhaps she's going to be a really big gecko as an adult.
I think reducing the supplementation will take care of the problem.
Geckos at 6 months are still growing, so I don't think their getting overweight is a big concern. If she were a year old, it would be different.
