Diet for gaining weight?

Hey guys,

I'm 20 and really super lean and thin. My BMI is within what's considered healthy for my age but barely so and my physician tells me my low weight isn't causing health problems or anything...but I really want to gain at least 20-25 pounds or so in the near future.

So far I've read that:
-resistive weight training is the way to go
-aerobics will make me lose more weight, not good
-eating a shitload of fatty food is not the way to gain weight
-vitamins, Omega-3 and protein powder are helpful
-5 or 6 small meals a day will help as opposed to 2 or 3

I pretty much don't work out at all, I'm always either busy with school or work or just too tired. My diet really really sucks though, lots of processed food so I'm looking to improve that.

So, any thoughts? I'm willing to go to a nutritionist if I can't make it happen on my own...

Thanks
