Joy lacks a beer belly

According to Joy Bauer of the Today show  , your waist measurement divided by your hip measurement (taken at the widest point of the hips), MUST be less than .8 for women and .9 for men, or else dreadful things will happen to you. 

She said your BMI isn’t that key, but this waist/hip ratio is really really really important and if it’s over the aforementioned guidelines you face certain doom.
