If you lose: 6 pounds in three days - most of that is likely to be water weight. Which means your weight will go back up again as you rehydrate. 6 pounds in 3 days is too steep a rate of loss. Would adjust your goal. Take care.

Fast: By going on a complete fast, you should be able to lose one pound per day.

What can I do about clothing that hurts by the end of the day?

Interesting question: Is the question asking what to do about discomfort caused by wearing certain clothing? (clothing itself is not alive and has no feelings.) a person could have some sensory nerve problems in the skin that signal pain when that part of the skin is touched by clothing (a dermatologist or neurologist can look into the matter). One can try wearing different fabrics to see if softer fabrics help.
