Acidity during evening

Hi, I have chronic acidity problems, even my mom and dad has history of gastric and acidity. I have struggled my life with acidity. I have tried various diet to control it, including eating raw and eating at regular intervals of two hours. After moving to bangalore it has become worse and lately it is very bad. I usually take 150mg Zintac after lunch to control it followed by omez during morning if it is still there. From past two weeks it is really worse, I wake up with vomiting sensation in the morning and get heart burn with in one hour of breakfast. I usually have breakfast at 7. By 10 heart burn is fine but I can feel I have acidity. Same thing happens after lunch which I take around 12:30. In between I have one portion of fruit. After 4 it gets worse, no heart burn but I can feel acidity via blurb. I don't get any gas. I get gas during night time, but not much. So if I take Zintac after lunch and dinner, I am absolutely fine. Please recommend what should I do..
