I bookended "feasts" with fasts. e.g. I fasted for 20 hours prior to Super Bowl Sunday, then fasted from midnight until 8 PM, took in about 500 calories, and fasted again until 4 PM the next day to get myself back on track (I believe that patterns are a key ingredient to success- whether it's eating at the same time daily, or eating the same cycle of meals). Bookending works because you have a goal in sight, you get the reward, and then you are motivated to get back on track after the feast. Thus, even if I took in 5000 calories in the eight hours on SB Sunday, I had basically cut out those calories in the timeframe around the feasting.
