The most obvious reason, although not necessarily a complete reason, is that your dietary needs are different at different times (if you are bleeding heavily, you will need extra iron to replace all the haemoglobin you are losing; and if you are pregnant, you will have the extra dietary needs of the embryo as well as the different demands placed upon your body).
