Small portion or eat big?

eating big and eating small

I am a bit confused about these two statements i see quite a few times

- Eat small portions at least 6 times a day
- To get big you have to eat big!

I find these two statemtnts contradict each other.
You cant eat big if you plan to eat small portions.. Can someone please explain this to me..

    Ok, things will be dependant upon whether you're cutting or bulking, however.

    Eat small portions - Instead of eating 3 meals per day each consisting of 650 cals each for example.

    Eat 6 meals containing 325 calories in each.


    When we bulk, we say, "eat big to get big".

    So, you have larger portions in those 6 meals, possibly add a 7th, 8th meal, etc... But get a lot of cals from clean foods.

    Oh so you only eat small portions when you are cutting and you eat big when bulking.

    When bulking, does it matter how big you eat on each of those meals? e.g. can you eat as much(Healthy meals ofcourse) as you want on each of the 6,7 to 8 meals?

    Generally eat often (at least 6 meals a day)

    If bulkng they will be big portions, if cutting small portions.

    When bulking, best to make meals evenish, plus they should be healthy and balanced (protien/carb/fat)

    You can eat as much as you want when bulking, but eat too much and you'll put on more fat
