Hourglass: Ioana Spangenberg's waist is an incredible 20-inches and she weighs just six stone

A model with a waist of just 20 inches has insisted she eats three square meals a day, including fatty foods such as crisps, pizza and kebas.

Ioana Spangenberg, 30, measures in at 5ft 6 inches tall, weighing six stone.

The model told The Sun: 'No one seems to believe it, but every day i eat three big meals and I snack on chocolate and crisps all the time.

'I just have a small stomach. It's a bit like a gastric band, if I eat too much I feel sick'.

Mrs Spangenberg was born a a very normal weight of seven pounds, and only saw her body transform into what it is now when she was a teenager.

When she was 13 she would get friends to put their hands completely around her 15in waist.

She says she has tried to fatten up, eating sweets like Mars bars to do so, but to no avail.

'In Romania it is better to be overweight, because that means you are from a wealthy family.'

It was only in 2006 when she met her German husband Jan, that she says she finally became comfortable in her own skin.

He encouraged her to become a model after photographs he posted of her online received a fantastic reaction.

'I would still like to gain weight so I don't look so shocking. And now that I live in Germany I can't get enough pizza or kebabs.'
