I just recently started getting back into lifting. I am 5'10 and weigh about 156. Obviously I need to put on some mass before I can start seeing any real muscle gains, thus I had some questions about how to structure my diet. This early in the process how many calories should I be taking in? Currently I am around anywhere from 2000-2400. Will this suffice do you think?

I know proper breakdown of nutrients is important as well, however, sometimes my options are limited but I am making sure to get proper amounts of protein after my workout. Also, how important or useful is it to take casein before bed. Currently I am just taking a whey shake in the morning with breakfast and then taking one after my workout.
