Sorry, you need certain things to fix the hangover, but not necessarily "junk food". The classic cure is scrambled eggs and toast with butter, nothing junky about that. Two pieces of toast, lightly buttered (or one English Muffin or some part of a bagel), two scrambled eggs, a glass of low fat milk, followed by two Advil (or their generic alternative). Push water (try to get about 32 ounces down after you eat but pace yourself). Then go back to bed and try to sleep for a few hours. You won't feel perfect, but you will be functional.
Anybody who says don't eat, just drink Gatorade has NO idea what they're talking about. I've ummm, dealt with hangovers more than I care to admit ... and alcohol poisoning, too but I digress. Eggs and carbs ... there's something about the saturated fat and easily digestible carbs that stabilize everything faster. And you need food before you can take an NSAID and you DO NOT want to take Tylenol (or it's generic) after drinking, ever.
Stop worrying about calories, you screwed the pooch with the second drink. Take care of your immediate needs and get back on plan when you don't feel like you're dying. You don't need a ton of food, just the right food: Eggs, butter, bread, milk, water.
