The same thing happened to my discus. But i have good news. This happened for around a month or so until finally the male discus stopped eating them. I think your discus will eventually learn to stop eating his own eggs just like mine did. You can try to feed them when he is about to eat the eggs, but my advice is just wait and hopefully things will change for the better :)
