An egg is an unfertilized egg, which means that there are proteins inside the egg but did not develop into flesh. If we base it from the definition of meat which is; edible meat/flesh from an animal, then we are not satisfying the definition, hence, they don't count as meat.

No they are not

Eggs are basically chicken periods if they're unfertilized. If they are fertilized, they are frozen before a chick can begin to form in the shell anyway. The yolk is merely the food it would've ate had it had chance to grow. Saying that eggs are meat is like saying used maxipads are equivalent to steak.

They are not a fruit, a vegetable, a plant product, or an animal product that doesn't harm animals. Plus, its taste is unique like many other meats. I think egg should be considered meat. It is an unborn chicken. You fried it and ate it. In all essence, it was supposed to be and is meat.

Inside of an unfertilized egg, it's nothing but a product. If indeed, the egg was fertilized, there's an unborn baby inside the egg, which would be meat. But most of the time, farmer just don't let the male with the female, which means that the eggs are unfertilized, meaning no baby inside.

South Koreans are not setting themselves up for an obesity problem because of the number of the fried chicken restaurants they have. This is yet another example of scaremongering and trying to create problems where none exist. In instances like this one only needs to follow the money to see where the real concern lies.

So are eggs considered meat? Should people who eat eggs be considered a type of vegetarian (i.e., lac-to-ovo vegetarian), or should they be labeled a different term as a non-vegetarian if eggs are considered meat?

Unlike other dairy products, eggs are extremely high in protein. The whites are where the protein is hidden while the yolks harbor certain vitamins as well as cholesterol and the majority of the calories. Because of this, people who are dieting usually try to consume only the low-calorie whites so they can load up on protein, which helps keep them feeling fuller, longer. Their protein content is similar to meat.
