A problem on the Energy spectrum plot by using FFT

Hi, guys
I am using the FFT to plot the energy spectrum of the turbulent velocity at the axial direction. but the figure shows that the sidelobes decrease very fast at the high frequencies, just as shown in black rectangular in the attached figure. I spend a lot of time to find out the reason. If you come across such problem before, please give me some clues. P.S. The precision of the original singular is double precision. Thanks in advance.

I have used the Spectrum Function for LES data from the following link and it worked out fine.

Hello guys!
I am simulating flow through a constricted pipe at Re=1000 using LES. DNS studies available in the literature predicts it as fully turbulent, and I am also getting similar results. I probed velocity at a suitable location and wrote a code in octave to create the spectrum. But I am getting the same trend similar to Martin's case. Towards the higher frequencies, the oscillations in energy are gone, and the curve looks like a straight line. Is this correct? Is there any problem with the simulation? or the fft code is the one to blame? Somebody please give some advice.. Thanks a lot for your time and consideration.
