Abstract: In this note we prove Fujita's spectrum conjecture for polarized varieties in the case of $ \mathbb{Q}$-Gorenstein projective toric varieties of index $ r$. The theorem follows from a combinatorial result using the connection between lattice polytopes and polarized projective toric varieties. By this correspondence the spectral value of the polarized toric variety equals the $ \mathbb{Q}$-codegree of the polytope. Now the main theorem of the paper shows that the spectrum of the $ \mathbb{Q}$-codegree is finite above any positive threshold in the class of lattice polytopes with $ \alpha $-canonical normal fan for any fixed $ \alpha >0$.
