Theme is causing website to be extremely slow and affecting shared server

I bought the efor theme package. I have been working on my website for awhile and we launched at the beginning of the month. It is running very slow and after being tested on the google page speed test it is in the red. I was also restricted from the server on host gator. I have tested all of the plugins and none of them seem to be making a difference. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The author @pixelwars is a power elite so you should definitely start by asking them

Their demo seems to run fairly well so it doesn’t appear to be that. Have you optimised your site, images etc?
