It means more meals at more frequent intervals that contain higher levels of protein, carbohydrates, and a lot of water.
 

The average woman eats around .25 - .5 grams of protein per pound of body weight. The female bodybuilder should take in from 1.5 - 2 grams of protein per body weight daily, which is something like 40% of each meal.
