I've read a lot on information on other diets when it comes to fitness. Most recommend eating 5 to 6 meals a day. They also want you to know what your macros are like what percentable is carbs/protein/fat. Is there any differences between Paleo and these recommendations?

My tip for Paleo beginners is to give yourself grace and to acknowledge that non-Paleo food cravings are going to be a reality when you first start out. It is normal, but stay strong! Don’t give in. Keep reminding yourself that on average, you’ll need those 3 weeks to get used to all the changes you’re bringing to your body. Something you can do to help yourself during these 21 days is to get rid of all the non-Paleo foods you have in your pantry and refrigerator…and to stop buying non-Paleo foods and ingredients at the store. Instead, go grocery shopping for all of the Paleo approved ingredients that you and your family would eat in a week, and then when you get home, prepare one week’s worth of Paleo meals and Paleo snacks ahead of time, so you can have these handy in your fridge for whenever you get hungry. This will avoid a lot of cravings. Also, don’t forget to drink water. I have noticed that sometimes when I get “hungry” and my body gets restless, it’s just because of my lack of hydration. So make sure you meal prep and that you drink lots of fluids. BEST OF LUCK to you! I am confident you’re going to love the Paleo journey.

I think the main reason dieters recommend many small meals throughout the day is that when people get really hungry they tend to break down and eat unhealthy. Slightly hungry and you might eat a cheese stick - really hungry and you might go for ice cream. You can eat paleo regardless of meal frequency.
