How to stop stress/procrastination/self-punishing/comfort binge eating?

Examples of my binge eating
-after a phone call with my parents which stresses me out -> entire stack of chocolate digestives
-before writing an essay -> entire loaf of bread
-after sending an awkward text which isn't replied to ASAP or after a social event where I felt drained and awkward/not being myself ->mcdonalds chicken burger meal but eaten so quickly that I give myself indigestion
-after a bad interview -> order chocolate cake even though eating low carb
I've recognized my triggers but feel so powerless to stop it! Ex/non emotional eaters, how did you stop? What other coping mechanisms work just as well as food? This is literally the bane of my life since it happens like at least once a week when I'm in uni, and I dont want to do this to my body anymore, or my self respect since it jeapordizes all my otherwise good weight loss efforts and I want to lose the freshman 15 as a matter of self respect!
Help me metafilter, you're my only hope!
