There are a lot of things you can do to distract yourself and buy yourself time:

First, do a pros and cons list. Actually sit down and write out the pros and cons of binging. Then write out the pros and cons of NOT binging. This exercise forces you to think of the consequences and it takes a long time, which is what you need so you can collect your thoughts and think rationally.

Next, you can start asking yourself questions. Ask yourself why you want to binge at that particular moment: what is the underlying emotion? What are you feeling? Really spend time figuring out what is causing the thoughts of binging, then when you isolate the emotion and reason, ask yourself if there is something else you can do to soothe yourself. For example, if you realize that you feel dread because you have to do something you don't want to, like exercise, what can you do besides eating to make you feel better and stop that negative emotion? Again, this exercise takes time, which is what you need.

I have others if you want to PM me.
