In fact, we should start treating our gut with care if we are interested in weight loss, muscle gain or overall health in general

We don’t really feel our guts. Specifically, we don’t often feel gut pain or any other sensations. That’s because our guts lack pain sensing receptors (known as nociceptors). Nocioceptors sense noxious stimuli and send signals to our brain to let it know. These signals are registered as “pain.” For example, the next time you accidentally step on a nail or sharp object, thank your nociceptors. They’re responsible for forcing you to remove your foot to prevent further damage.
