    How can I lose 6 kg in the next 3 months?

    Related Topic
    I train 6 days a week. I run 6-8km 4 times a week, 10km once a week and spin on Mondays. I do full body weights twice a week. I used to be super lean but the last 2 years I keep getting heavier and have put on 6km. I try to diet but it is too hard as I feel too tired to train and I crave chocolate all the time. I'm turning 44, female, 150cm tall and weigh 53kg. Please help.
