Why are sloths slow?

A sloth is not slow because they are sloth and lazy. the reason they move at an average of 0.24 km/h is because they eat nothing but leaves, which do not contain much nutrients. sloths also have complex stomachs but they have a sloth digestive system so that is also another factor to why they so slow. Thank you
