Help me to speed up my site, please.


I'm using Atahualpa as a CMS on this site: http://www.WorldofDiets.com.

The site is loading very slowly, much slower than static html sites I have and other Wordpress sites I see on the web.

I'm using WP super-cache and PHP speedy but neither seems to have helped me a whole lot.

What else can I do to make the site load faster?

I don't know how to do gzipping, which I read can help, so any advice on that will be great as well.

Thanks for you help in advance.

Wordpress 3.4.1, Atahualpa 3.7.7
PHP Speedy was slowing down my site dreadfully when I tried it. And I wonder if it's good to use it with another speed plugin anyway.

Just curious: why are you using the Samsarin PHP Widget to show links to the various diets in your left sidebar? Why not the blogroll or just the text widget?
