In 2010, a month before his 16th birthday, Zach Zeiler was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, and underwent cancer chemotherapy and radiation treatments which left him an emaciated 100 pounds. As he recovered, he became a gym fanatic, and you can see the amazing results...

He keeps swearing up and down that he doesn't do steroids, although that's really hard to believe when you see him now...

His mother, Joanna Zeiler, 48, said: 'One day Zach was laying down in my room. I passed by and he said to me, "mom I'm sorry I soaked your bed."

'He was covered in sweat from head to toe. 'I was noticing more and more that he would come home drained, which was unlike him because he was very athletic.' She added: 'My father passed away from Hodgkins as well, so we started seeing the same symptoms in Zach and suspecting he had it too. 'It was the first time I ever saw my father cry. 'Everyone was upset - I was the only one who was calm for the most part.'

Zach's girlfriend, Tara Hurley, 21, was also distraught upon hearing about his illness - but stood by him throughout his treatment. Joanna, a children's day care worker, said: 'I'll never forget the look in her eyes when we drove to her house and told her diagnosis. 'I pulled her in close and put her head on my shoulder. She was absolutely devastated.' Zach added: 'I asked Tara out two months before my diagnosis - I snuck over to her house on Christmas Day and wrote out "will you go out with me" in Lincoln Logs. 'We have been together for almost five years now - and she's been by my side through everything.'

Now that's a lucky girlfriend! They're engaged to be married now.

I believe the massive growth in such a short period of time, along with the excessive vascularity can only be achieved with "some help". I don't think those results are attainable with diet and exercise alone.

 

Nevertheless, its an incredible achievement, he looks great and I hope he is as Healthy as he looks...

A lot of people don't realize what's actually attainable naturally. As long as they don't look like Kai Greene, if they say they're natural people believe them. People use the 1950's fitness magazines and Steve Reeves as their bench mark of what can be done naturally, when those guys were actually on steroids too. Part of the hang up with steroids. Just because someone's on steroids doesn't take away from the hard work they've done to shape their body's. If you think steroid equal laziness, remember Lance Armstrong was on steroids, and he wasn't exactly Mr. Universe.

I have no hangups about steroids or their use, as long as its done under supervision to ensure safety. Unmonitored usage can have tragic results.
